For this month’s CPD session, we will have two presentations:

“Obtaining Professional Registration” presented by Ade Morris and Andrew Rooney
Ade and Andy will be talking us through the process for obtaining professional registration with the Royal Aeronautical Society. They will share the requirements for the process, describe the benefits of gaining professional registration and provide their insights having obtained Chartered Engineer status. If you are interested in gaining professional registration, please have a look at the RAeS website here: and be ready to pose any questions you have.

“UK Reaper (MQ-9) Programme – Engineering Management Challenges” presented Rebecca Langton (MEng CEng MRAeS)
Rebecca was formerly the RAF’s Reaper Force Engineering Officer before her recent move to NZ. The RAF has been a key player for a century of military aviation. As its first large Remotely Piloted Air System, Reaper MQ-9 has been a catalyst for change for a lot of its operating models, from crewing requirements to compliance with engineering regulation. In particular, the terms ‘aircraft’ or even ‘air system’ call into question the definition of the Reaper’s system boundary; Air Vehicle, Ground Control Station (GCS) and communications links including command & control (C2). The programme includes multiple engineering contractors as well as UK & US governments, adding complexity to the coordination role. Within the unclassified nature of this presentation, an overview of the system, future progression and some of the unique engineering management challenges of RPAS and drones will be discussed.
