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.
FAA Yeovilton Branch
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.
Save the date for this Historical Lecture and more information will be available soon. All RAeS lectures are free to attend and we welcome both Members and Non-members.
Joint RAeS/IMechE/IET Event
“40 Years of the Hawker Siddeley Hawk”
The 2014 Conference on Tuesday 23, Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 September at the Society’s Headquarters in London will examine the work undertaken by the International Pilot Training Consortium (IPTC) and seek to determine what further work is required and under what auspices it should be conducted
Air Marshal Richard Garwood will talk about the role of the Military Aviation Authority and how it works including regulation, European airworthiness, certification, accident investigation and the future.
This lecture honours Capt Ray Jones, one of the Flight Simulation Groups founding members and celebrates his contribution to the development of the group, the advancement in the art and science of flight simulation and in particular application in the training of civil airline pilots.
This workshop will bring UAS civil, government and military operators, regulators, UAS manufacturers and technology developers together to better understand and discuss the "detect and avoid" challenge.
The 4th Aircraft Structural Design Conference is hosted by Queen’s University Belfast which is internationally recognised as a leading university devoted to teaching and research in engineering with particular expertise in aeronautical engineering. Please visit www.aerosociety.com for more information on the venue and host city.
The Conference will examine future opportunities and challenges, novel and contentious solutions, and the potential benefits of pushing the boundaries further. It will ask questions and seek solutions.
This lecture is being organised by the Aerospace Medicine Group.
28th Sir Henry Tizard Event
“F-35 Flight Testing”
Sqn Ldr Jim Schofield
Ticketed Event Only
The Safety Management Symposium aims to provide a series of presentations from various organisations to explain, using relevant examples, the challenges they face when managing complex safety systems.
Sir Peter will draw on his experience of the 2010 SDSR and of the development and publication of the 2012 White Paper, “National Security Through Technology” as well as his involvement In the Defence Growth Partnership, to reflect on what industry should expect – and seek – in the 2015 SDSR.
The subject of the 2014 Greener by Design Conference, held jointly with the RAeS Propulsion Group, is “Alternative Fuels and Propulsion Systems – Reducing Aviation’s Impact on the Environment”. The aim of the conference is to assess the low carbon propulsion and fuel options for aviation.
“Antarctic Helicopter Operations”
Lt Cdr Lee Evans
This conference aims to explore the current and future capabilities of platforms and weapon systems. This event is classified and open to UK nationals only.
The Airworthiness & Maintenance Group will be holding a half day workshop on Thursday 30 October and will focus on the growing trend towards Hourly Usage Agreements between aircraft operators and service providers.
This conference aims to bring together the global research aircraft operating community to share lessons and capabilities, as well as future plans for both campaigns and facility improvements. This conference is aimed at all participants in the planning, management and execution of airborne research programmes, both manned and unmanned, and both scientifically and aeronautically oriented.
The Young Persons' Annual Conference is a great opportunity to learn from, network and engage with your peers across the industry.
More details will be available shortly.
“Remotely Piloted Air System (RPAS) Operations and Integration in Civil and Military Airspace”
Dr Stuart Gilmartin
The objectives of this conference are to examine the recent advances made in the design and use of this class of devices and to identify specific areas of simulation design and data provisioning that requires future enhancement so that further training capabilities and fidelity can be realised.
This year's General Aviation Conference will follow on from the successful theme of 2013. More details will follow shortly.
This Named Lecture honours Major Kenneth Beaumont CBE, DSO, MA (Oxon), AFRAeS. Beaumont was the UK’s most prominent name in air law in his age, after starting as technical advisor to Imperial Airways in the mid-1920s. For many years his firm, Beaumont and Son, was one of the leading aviation practices in the world. He was also a founding editor of Shawcross and Beaumont on Air Law, which was first published in 1945 and remains the leading textbook to this day.
Details of this year's Air Transport conference will be published nearer the time. Please check back for further information.
This Air Transport Debate will follow the same theme as the Annual Air Transport Conference.
The 2014 Women in Aviation and Aerospace conference will focus on mentoring and will also provide another opportunity to speed network, something that was particularly popular at the 2013 Conference.
Further details and a full conference programme will be available shortly.
