Each year the Aviation Club UK hold seven lunch events which are open to Members and their invited guests. Tickets are currently priced at £73.20 (inc VAT) for Members and £96.00 (inc VAT) for guests and can be booked and paid for online. There is no limit to the number of guests a Member may bring. The lunches are held at the Royal Automobile Club (RAC) at 89 Pall Mall, London SW1Y 5HS, with an average of 140 attendees at each function and plenty of opportunity to connect with industry peers and expand your industry contacts.
Typically starting at noon with a pre-lunch drinks reception each lunch offers an excellent platform for business, hospitality and networking in a friendly club-like environment. Lunch attendees sit down to a three course meal accompanied by wine at 12.30 pm and enjoy a topical speech from an industry figurehead. The list of all past speakers can be found here or in the ‘SPEAKERS’ section of the website. Lunches finish at 2.45 pm, but many members and their guests choose to continue their discussions in the Bar at the RAC.
The Club will be holding a series of virtual ‘lunch’ sessions from September 2020. These webinars are free to attend and have been scheduled as a forum for members to engage with each other and hear from a high level industry speaker, who will deliver a topical presentation. Hosted by the Chairman, each webinar will last for 60 minutes.
