Adelaide Branch

Welcome to the Adelaide Branch of the Royal Aeronautical Society.

The Adelaide Branch hosts a monthly lecture for the enjoyment and professional development of its members.

Unless otherwise specified, lectures are held on the last Tuesday of each month, commencing at 6pm, preceeded by refreshments at 5:30pm.   All lectures are held at UniSA, Mawson Lakes Campus (Building MM1-05, Mawson Lakes Boulevard) unless otherwise specified. There is ample car parking adjacent the lecture hall.

Remaining connected during these uncertain times

The RAeS Adelaide Branch Committee shares the community’s concerns about COVID-19 and particularly its devastating impact on the aviation industry.  The current situation is without precedent and the consequential effect of COVID-19 on the lives of many of our aviation colleagues and their families is increasing.  Since our last update this has been realised close to home with redundancies and long-term stand-down for many staff at airlines and associated suppliers and supporting companies.

What we're doing

The Adelaide Branch Committee and wider Royal Aeronautical Society leadership continues to meet regularly by teleconference.  While Adelaide Branch has not yet hosted online lectures we are hopeful that our Members have been able to access and take advantage of other events coordinated by other Branches.  Please check the 'Events' page on the website for upcoming events.

Looking ahead

One of the great things about the aviation industry is the interest shared by all who are involved in every sector of our industry.  At difficult times like these it is very important that we maintain our sense of unity, identity and common purpose.  We hope the online Branch events and our community facilitate this.

While the current situation may be novel to the aviation industry, one certainty to which we can all look forward is that there will continue to be an aviation industry in the future, even though it is unlikely to be quite the same.  Innovation always helps society out of adversity and we shall see that happen again over the coming months.

How you can help

We hope that you have seen and enjoyed the ‘Member Stories’ articles that have been made available on the website and it is expected that more of these will be posted.  The experiences of our members show how much ingenuity and perseverance there is in our community to overcome even the unprecedented challenges we are currently facing.

We encourage our members to contribute any stories that they see fit that we can post to our social media channels. We welcome all contributions long and short and these can include:

  • Unique memories and stories from your time in aviation
  • Opportunities that could be of interest to those in the industry who have recently been stood down
  • Messages of encouragement

If you have some suggestions as to how the Adelaide Branch may be able to help support the RAeS membership, and the broader aviation community, as we all cope with the impact of COVID-19, the Adelaide Branch committee will welcome your thoughts and ideas.

Please send us your input by sending us an email or contacting us via our Facebook page.
