Welcome to the Bristol Aero Talks website.

 

Bristol Aero Talks are a series of talks on aerospace and related high-technology subjects with particular emphasis on the history of the Bristol and surrounding areas.

 

These talks, for which no admission is charged, are held monthly at BAWA in Filton (click here for information on getting to BAWA).  The talks are normally held on a Friday evening between September and March.  However, as these talks are being run independently, we will ask for a voluntary contribution of one pound per person to cover the room rental and associated costs.  In the event there is an accrued surplus at the end of the season of talks it will be donated to a good cause such as the Air Ambulance.

 

Bristol Aero Talks makes use of e-mail as the primary communications medium and to handle matters efficiently a number of e-mail addresses have been set up - please see the Contact Us page for more information

 

NEWS

On Friday 21st September, Alan Smith, former BAe Concorde test pilot and Training Captain will recount his experiences testing the Big White Bird and teaching airline pilots to fly it.  This will form part of his flying life story beginning with RAF service on Gloucester Meteor night fighters and including airline flying experiences with numerous British operators.

External Events

Where we consider it appropriate we will advise Bristol Aero Talks attendees of events being organised by third parties that are likely to be of interest.

Currently there is no such event scheduled but a recent example was the large aero-model flying display put on by the Woodspring Wings model flying club at Yatton to which the Bristol Aero Collection Trust were invited.
