Seattle Royal Aeronautical Society

Welcome to the Seattle Branch of the Royal Aeronautical Society

The aim of this site is to keep members informed of upcoming events in the Society, and provide information for prospective members on what the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) is and why they should consider joining.

Seattle Branch

The Seattle Branch was formed in 1999 and has a steadily growing membership and a strong lecture program culminating in our annual major event, the November Black Tie Dinner Lecture, which is named in honor of Joe Sutter, the renowned "Father of the 747".

The Seattle Branch enjoys a close relationship with the world class Seattle Museum of Flight which is where our lectures and events generally take place. The Seattle Branch is administered by an elected president, secretary, treasurer and chairman, assisted by committee members.
