SATURDAY CLUB

TERM 3 2018 –

Aviation is proof that, given the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible” – Eddie Rickenbacker 1890-1973.

Saturday Club for Term 3 will focus on the theme of Aviation.

The program will be delivered by a team of aviation specialists comprising aircrew and engineers with both civil and military experience and a combined experience of over 60 years in the industry. The four sessions will serve to provide an introduction in to the complex world of aviation. The journey for all participants will commence on August 4th with a historical perspective, early pioneers and a more modern look in to the corner stone concept of flight such as lift and drag.

Sessions 2 and 3  on August 18th and September 1 respectively will then look at the issues of materials and design and then the propulsion system.

(Session 3 will run parallel to our AGM and we hope all financial members will attend)

Across these three sessions both junior and middle years attendees will be exposed to the same presentation but the depth of conversation and accompanying practical activities will be tailored.

In session 4  on September 15th the Middle years will investigate the other complex system of systems that go in to making an air vehicle operate safely and effectively – flight controls, hydraulics, landing gear, life support etc. Session 4 for the Junior years will look at the aviation industry from a personnel and ground systems view point and discuss the future state of the industry and design a service delivery model.

The Eventbrite link  and more detail on the individual sessions can be found here.  If this is your first experience of Saturday Club, please look at the conditions for your attendance.
