Welcome to the RAeS General Aviation Group

The General Aviation Group is concerned with the technical development of general aviation aircraft including aeroplanes, gliders, microlights and paragliders. Its special interests lie in good new design and construction, and rationalisation of airworthiness regulation.

The group achieves its purpose by arranging programmes of lectures, conferences, position papers, publications and visits, of a standard befitting the Society's position as the UK's Learned Society for Aviation.

The group committee also provides a forum through which bodies and organisations within the UK light aviation community can exchange views and ideas on "neutral ground".
