RAeS Pakistan Division

The Royal Aeronautical Society was founded in 1866, in UK, as a Learned Society. The society membership embraces all those professionally engaged in Aviation related fields, at all levels, including disciplines such as engineering, systems, flying, aviation medicine, law, marketing, air traffic contorl, etc.

The Royal Aeronautical Society came into being in Pakistan with the establishment of a Branch at Karachi in 1984, by Capt. E. M. Brown, the then president of RAeS.
The Branch was upgraded to a Division in 1992, as Pakistan was considered to have the potential of forming a number of Branches.
At present the Division is functional only at Karachi.

We have a sizable aviation community in Pakistan comprising active employees, and trainees of PAF, Army Aviation, Naval Aviation, Airlines, SUPARCO, CAA, etc.

To serve this community, we need to have at least five branches in the country to involve most of the members of this community who are seeking professional development and excellence. Currently there are 2 functional branches:

1. Risalpur Branch - Branch Secretary Gp Cpt Kamran Ahmed
2. Islamabad Branch -  Branch Secretary Squadron Leader Talha
