Our Major Dinner Event for the year is coming:  The 2017 Hargrave Dinner featuring the Hargrave Award winner Mr John Corby.  John has a long and distinguished personal history in aviation and aeronautics and many stories to tell.  Do join us and recommend this event to your friends as we have places available.  Don't forget to register for the free tour of the Aviation Museum which takes place before the dinner.

Also take note of our November event with Barnes Wallis Foundation Trustee Peter Rix giving a lecture entitled "The Achievements of Barnes Wallis" on November 8th at EA.
