What is Flight Testing?

Group objectives

The Society’s Flight Test Group:

  • Examines the human and engineering aspects of test flying aircraft, both military and civil, fixed and rotary wing
  • ‘Promote the value and values of flight testing within the RAeS and the wider aviation community’ by providing advice to the Society on flight test matters, sponsoring lectures on recent and current programmes, promoting symposia on flight testing and being available, both as individuals and as a group, to provide advice on flight testing practices


The Group organises a series of lectures throughout the year and contributes to the activity of number of other specialist groups.
