About Us

As the world’s only professional body dedicated to the aerospace community, we exist to further the advancement of aeronautical art, science and engineering around the world.

Established in 1866, the Society has been at the forefront of developments in aerospace, seeking to promote the highest professional standards and provide a central forum for sharing knowledge.


The Hong Kong Branch

Formed in 1983, the Hong Kong branch is a regional embodiment of the Society representing a local pool of aeronautical expertise. The local branch aims to raise aviation awareness and interests in both the public and industrial arenas, and provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and aerospace information.
