About Us

We are a friendly group – you will be made very welcome!

Our Mission

This Norfolk based group was formed in 2001 and aims to promote interest in aviation by arranging talks given by people of the aviation world and by setting up visits to places of both military and civil aviation interest.

Please contact us to find out more. Details at foot of page.

Meetings

Meetings are every third Thursday of the month at the International Aviation Academy at Norwich Airport. We start at 19:30 with a short update of news and future activities followed by a talk on an aviation related topic by a prominent speaker.

At the interval there is free tea, coffee and sandwiches.

Trips and Visits

Day trips to various aviation related venues across the country, and sometimes further afield, are arranged most months, as well as visits to airshows during the season.

Magazine details

Our widely appreciated magazine is free to members and visitors to talks, in paper or electronic format. Starting with the Chairman’s message to the meeting, its 20 A5 full-colour pages are packed with all kinds articles from the very up-to-date to the historical, the local to the far flung. 

General, civil and military aviation are all covered and illustrated with well chosen photographs.

Details of the talks and visits arranged for the year are found at the back of the magazine.
