Sir Donald Spiers, RAeS President 1995/96, delivered the inaugural Farnborough Branch lecture in January 1996.
A Farnborough Branch was not formed any earlier than this date because the Royal Aircraft Establishment (RAE) employees considered Hamilton Place to be their ‘local’ Branch with the RAE even providing transport to attend events in London.
Since Branch formation, BAE Systems have always offered generous support and continue to host the monthly lectures although one Farnborough Branch lecture per annum now takes place in Guildford courtesy of Surrey University.
