Aviation Group

1st Wednesday

Conservative Club

Leader: Martin Houghton
At 10:00
First Wednesday from 10-00 to 12-00 noon.
We meet at the Conservative Club, 30 Long Street, Devizes SN10 1NW.
The Group was formed originally by John Blunden and has since expanded and we typically attract between 30 and 40 members at our meetings. The talks are designed to appeal to both a non-technical audience and our members with aviation experiences.
In June 2018 we introduced a Members Skills Forum where we review and discuss aviation topics raised at meetings. Group members contribute to the topic based on their experience, general interest, or material they have read. In the current environment with restricted opportunities for meetings, group members have provided contributions to a book to be published by the Farnborough Air Sciences Trust later in the year.
Meetings have been suspended until government restrictions on group assemblies are relaxed and members’ feel confident to get together again.
Provisionally, future speakers and programme topics are:
3rd FebruaryPeter Taylor, the life of an Armourer

Further emails will confirm dates and speakers as conditions are clarified.
