The Honourable Company of Air Pilots incorporating Air Navigators

Annual Events

The 'Professional Committees' of the Company, the Education and Training Committee (E&TC), the Technical and Air Safety Committee (TASC) and the Environmental Committee (EnvC), each meet bi-monthly at the Company office.  It's through these committees that the Company concentrates its attention and work on aviation issues and matters of concern.

The following is a selection of 'Livery' and other events and activities that feature in the annual calendar of the Company.  Most of the events listed are open to all Company members (and also non-members in some cases).  The list is not exhaustive but illustrates that the Company is involved in many and diverse activities.
