Welcome to the RAeS Historical Group
The Historical Group exists to provide a focus within the RAeS for the study and discussion of aerospace history, and to contribute on behalf of the Society to wider activities in this field, both in the UK and internationally.
The Group organises lecture and discussion evenings at Hamilton Place - typically four or five per year. One-day conferences on specific subjects are also held occasionally

NEWS AND EVENTS
The 2014 Royal Aeronautical Society Biennial Applied Aerodynamics Research Conference will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of aspects of the advanced aero concepts, design and operations, covering both the research and the applications.
The Lanchester Lecture was set up to honour Frederick William Lanchester, HonFRAeS, Britain’s first great aerodynamicist. He is best known for designing and building the first British petrol driven four wheeled motor car (in 1895) and for his work on the theory of fl ight and design of aircraft. Lanchester’s work on stability was fundamental to aviation and he formulated the first comprehensive theory of lift and drag.
The European Rotorcraft Forum (ERF) is one of the premier events in the rotorcraft
community’s calendar, bringing together manufacturers, research centres, academia,
operators and regulatory agencies to discuss advances in research, development, design,
manufacturing, testing and operation of rotorcraft.
