Welcome to the RAeS Flight Test Group
The Flight Test Group (formerly the Test Pilots Group) examines the human and engineering aspects of test flying aircraft, both military and civil, fixed and rotary wing. With the experience of individual pilots and teams working on development projects, the Group provides a forum for all engaged in this area of aviation. The Group holds a number of Conferences and Lectures each year.

Christchurch Branch AGM and Special Lecture
This Aerodynamics Group Lecture will highlight the findings from a survey paper on railway train aerodynamics by Prof. Chris Baker of Birmingham University.
Established in 1963, this Named Lecture is run alternately with Cranfield. It honours Sir Frederick Handley Page CBE, HonFRAeS, in recognition of his many contributions to aviation, and in particular to safety and reliability in air transportation. After WW2 he was instrumental in setting up the College of Aeronautics at Cranfield, where he was a Governor up to the time of his death.
