The Brisbane Branch was founded in 1992 and is growing steadily as Brisbane becomes the centre for aviation and aerospace research within Australia.The Branch has strong ties with local groups for Engineers Australia, IMechE and the Australian Youth Aerospace Association (AYAA) with joint events being held on a regular basis. The Branch has many active members from a range of industry and research backgrounds as well as a long history with the RAAF Base Amberley. The branch changed its name to the Queensland Branch in 2013 to better reflect the identity of its members from all across the state.
The branch commitee meets monthly to plan events and activities for the members in the Brisbane area. New volunteers for the committee are always welcome and interested persons should contact the Branch Chairman.
