The Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) has published a book to commemorate its 150th anniversary. Called “Delivering the Dream”, and written by Richard Gardner, the aviation historian, it is on sale at £15 for 150 pages of close text, which is exceptional value.
It features a fascinating selection of striking images, some previously never before published.
Alexey Isaikin FRAeS, president of Volga Dnepr Group, supporter of the publication said: “The society embodies everything that is best about aerospace and aviation; professional standards, science and engineering excellence, and the realisation that there is always progress that can be achieved when we share out knowledge and expertise.
"A 150th anniversary is a great moment to stop and reflect on what has been achieved. It is an even more exciting opportunity to consider where the world of aerospace and aviation innovation is going next and how we can all benefit.”
The book takes readers from Leonardo da Vinci, through the Wright brothers, the start of proper scheduled air travel and the arrival of the jets, to the latest from NASA, all copiously illustrated.
It is a book for young people getting into aviation and at the same time an excellent read for more mature souls wanting to be reminded of former times.
