The enormous strides taken by the fixed wing community in the development of increasingly efficient, mission focussed, cost effective, green and quick to market solutions have not been matched by the rotary wing community. The barrier to matching the fixed wing community is not concepts or vision: it is the infrastructure of technology and manufacturing techniques that have contrived to hold our community back. Learning lessons from the fixed wing community and adapting them to suit the needs of the rotary wing vehicle is our challenge and the time is now right to take on this challenge and succeed.  Royal Aeronautical Society, No.4 Hamilton Place, London, W1J 7BQ, June 15-16, 2011.

    • Handley Page Limited: Celebrating the Centenary of the First British Aircraft Company  Handley Page Ltd. was formed as a private Company on 17th June 1909, and became a Public Company on 20th January 1919. Sir Frederick Handley Page was Managing Director until his death in 1962. He helped guide the Royal Aeronautical Society towards its current form in 1911 and virtually rescued it from insolvency after WW2 (it was said). He valued education for engineers; the Company's Apprentice Scheme was one of the best in Industry. He taught at Northampton Engineering Institute (now City University) in 1910, and was a Founder Member of the College of Aeronautics, and Chairman of its Board until his death. Handley Page also had a strong commitment to research. His "Auto-Slot," patented in 1919, was on every RAF aircraft from 1928 until the start of the War. In the 1950s and 1960s, HP was probably the foremost company in Europe in laminar flow for low drag. On the characteristics of slender delta wings, the well-behaved HP 115 low speed research aircraft gave confidence that "Concorde" would not be critical at low speed. The outstanding HP product after the War was the "Victor" V-bomber. The aerodynamic design of the wing to achieve acceptable low-speed handling and a critical Mach No. of 0.875, and the advanced structural design, were state of the art. It was a successful aircraft as nuclear bomber and air-to-air tanker, in RAF service for over 30 years. Speakers at the Conference will tell the story of Handley Page Ltd, its products and of Sir Frederick's interests in education and the Society.  No.4 Hamilton Place, London, September 10, 2009.
