RAeS events deliver expert content, insight and networking across the breadth of technical, engineering and business subjects affecting aerospace professionals.
Our annual calendar of around 20 events of lectures, technical visits, competitions and field trips are designed to support your professional development and industry knowledge.
Following from our successful branch webinar, the main branch has launched a series of lectures for our members.
In this pandemic, the webinar series is still a great way to keep abreast of important issues in our industry, looking into the future, as well as learning from the past. For the history buffs, there are also fantasitic aeronautical stories.

Our first virtual lecture with General Electric’s Josh Mook, on additive manufacturing for Gas Turbines and Aerospace applications. Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is a transformative approach to industrial production that enables the creation of lighter, stronger parts and systems.
As an engineering leader for GE Additive, Josh Mook is leading a team to accelerate additive adoption across the world and to facilitate customers on their own additive design and manufacturing journeys.
Josh joined GE Aviation in 2005 as a product design engineer and has spent 12 years advancing his career in design and development of GE's commercial and military engines. In 2008, Josh joined the GEnx airfoils team where he led design programs for flowpath hardware. In 2011, he was selected to lead the LEAP fuel nozzle design team through design and certification. As the leader of an additive engine demonstrator program later named the A-CT7, Josh oversaw fast-track development and testing of a derivative engine that enabled a more than 8 percent reduction in engine weight and an 8 percent reduction in cost.
Josh is a 2008 graduate of GE’s Edison Engineering Development Program. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from Purdue University and a Master of Science in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati.
Registration for the webinar is now open.
