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

From September 2021, meetings will be held  every third Wednesday of the month, at the Sprowston Sports and Social Club, Blue Boar Lane, Norwich NR7 8RY. They will also be available virtually on Zoom.

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.

In the interval, at the Academy, there is free tea, coffee and sandwiches.

Trips and Visits

Although currently suspended, 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.
