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
