Welcome to the RAeS Propulsion Group
The Propulsion Group covers all aspects of the design, manufacture, installation and operation of existing and new air vehicle propulsion concepts. Its scope includes aerodynamics, materials, control systems, health monitoring, noise, pollution, airworthiness, safety, maintainability, testing techniques and facilities and the management of development and operating costs. The Committee comprises representatives from industry, operators, research establishments and universities.
The Group is a joint committee of the Society and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, within its Aerospace Industries Division . It supplies a member to the Confederation of European Aerospace Societies (CEAS) propulsion committee and collaborates with the AIAA, AHS and SAE in organising and promoting the International Powered Lift Conference (IPLC). It typically organises one symposium or conference per year and one university day per year.
The Group is also responsible for organising and judging the Whittle Reactionaries prize, which is open to engineers in the early stages of their career.

NEWS AND EVENTS
The Society invites Apprentices and their employers to join them for this informative networking seminar to better understand the importance of membership organisations and how we can support your career and professional development.
This conference aims to examine how recent changes in legislation, together with recent and future innovation in aircraft design, will impact on airworthiness and maintenance and, in particular, the role of the aircraft maintenance engineer.
This Flight Test Group lecture will explore the development and evaluation of Day Night All Weather (DNAW) technology for fixed and rotary-wing aircraft conducted in the UK over the last 30 years outside conventional civil and military IFR operations.
