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.

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.
