We have been fortunate to secure a visit to the award winning Museum of Berkshire Aviation in Woodley.
Berkshire's dynamic contribution to aviation history is graphically recaptured at the museum. Run as a charitable trust, the museum is at the historic site of Woodley Airfield, near Reading, once the centre of a thriving aircraft industry. Miles and Handley Page aircraft built at Woodley are being re-constructed and exhibited along with fascinating pictorial records and priceless archives.The museum welcomes group visits and runs an active educational programme for schools, linked to National Curriculum requirements, demonstrating the development of aviation techniques.

Speaker: Captain Hugh Dibley, FRAeS, FRIN, FCILT
Flight Simulators have been in use since 1909 when early aircraft were unstable and difficult to fly in good weather, greatly improving safety by teaching pilots to fly in cloud on instruments and now civil pilots can be trained and checked on top level simulators without the expense of flying aircraft making flight simulators essential for airline viability. Aircraft manufacturers have always used simulation in some form to assist in the design and development of aircraft and now with computerisation engineering flight simulators are central to the whole process from conception through to flight test monitoring and possible in service improvements. Hugh will discuss the history and development of current systems and the future need for flight simulators and pilot training and how to help pilots carry maximum payload at minimum cost.Videos of incidents illustrating the need for flight training will be shown.
Refreshments will be provided before the event.

Speaker: Siegfried Huegemann
Batteries are too large, heavy, and too costly for the African transportation market. No other technology can compete with hydrogen fuel cells when it comes to emission-free heavy-load, long-haul, and light-weight transport. Africa is a gold mine for renewable energy due to abundant solar, wind, geothermal and hydropower resources. Hydrogen can be easily stored and transported using existing modern technologies. Power-to-Gas (P2G) is the process of managing the intermittent character of renewable energy, converting the surplus renewable energy into hydrogen, and delivering green hydrogen to the distribution system. Hear how it can be done with a presentation from Siegfried Huegemann.
About the speaker: Siggi rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the German Army before gaining a Masters of Commerce in Finance and Quantative Analysis. He has specialised in Banking Technology since 1997 and currently manages derivatives technology with a leading asset management company. Since 2014, Siggi has driven the African Hydrogen Power initiative and network. African Hydrogen Power is dedicated to promoting green hydrogen and fuel cell technology in Africa.
Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.
