The FAST Museum celebrates the history of the Royal Aircraft Establishment and its predecessor, the Royal Aircraft Factory.  Established in 1911, the factory designed and built military aircraft and was also a centre for research.  The RAE from 1918 was one of the worlds leading aeronautical research centres covering aircraft, engines, equipment, missiles and spaceflight.  The Museum is in Trenchard House, built in 1907 as the headquarters of the Royal Engineers Balloon School, it became the HQ of Lord Trenchard for the first year of World War 1.  The Museum contains material from both the Factory and the Establishment, as well as exhibits about Samuel Cody who made the first powered flight in Britain nearby.  A lunch table for our group will be booked at the adjacent Swan Hotel.  The cost of the visit will be £10 per person.  We will make our own way to the museum.  Payment will be due at the December lunch.
