Welcome to the RAeS Propulsion Group
The Propulsion Group covers all aspects of the design, manufacture, installation and operation of existing and new air vehicle propulsion concepts. Its scope includes aerodynamics, materials, control systems, health monitoring, noise, pollution, airworthiness, safety, maintainability, testing techniques and facilities and the management of development and operating costs. The Committee comprises representatives from industry, operators, research establishments and universities.
The Group is a joint committee of the Society and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, within its Aerospace Industries Division . It supplies a member to the Confederation of European Aerospace Societies (CEAS) propulsion committee and collaborates with the AIAA, AHS and SAE in organising and promoting the International Powered Lift Conference (IPLC). It typically organises one symposium or conference per year and one university day per year.
The Group is also responsible for organising and judging the Whittle Reactionaries prize, which is open to engineers in the early stages of their career.
