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.

    AGM & Lecture – A Rummage in the Attic

    Do you have an interesting aviation artefact with a story to tell? For the Derby Branch AGM, in April 2015, we would like to call for speakers from within the Branch membership to take part in a special "Rummage in the Attic" lecture. The format for the evening, after the AGM business, will consist of four short (10-15 min) presentations by volunteer speakers who will display an aviation artefact to the audience and give a description of the artefact's history and their personal link to it
