Welcome to the RAeS Rotorcraft Group

The Rotorcraft Group keeps the aeronautical community informed of developments across the whole range of helicopter and rotorcraft design, manufacture and operation worldwide. It aims to promote discussion on all important matters and hence provide the Society with feedback on these major issues.

The Rotorcraft Section includes members from manufacturers, operators (civil and military), research establishments and academia who organise a number of Conferences and Lectures each year.
