Welcome to the RAeS Air Transport Group

The scope of the Air Transport Group is wide-ranging - covering aircraft design, marketing, operations, airport management and planning, air traffic control, finance, and regulatory matters. The Committee membership reflects this variety including, as it does, pilots, aeronautical engineers from a wide variety of disciplines, airline managers, consultants, and university lecturers. The diversity of activities leads to regular collaboration with other Groups such as Air Law, Flight Operations, and Management Studies.

The group promotes activities in its area of interest, carrying out a regular review of industry developments and maintains close contact with other Specialist Groups, co-operating in those areas of common interest. It communicates its activities to the membership at large, inviting comments and participation.

Through the Chairman of the Branches Committee, it will endeavour to involve the Branches and, from time to time, schedule meetings at Branches.
