Following last winter’s successful At Home series, in the best tradition of modern media, we bring you Series II commencing on Wednesday 19th January 2022 with a deep dive by Max Bishop into the world of Aviation & Space pioneers. THE (W)RIGHT STUFF - WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A PIONEER? Aviation and space pioneers of today, such as Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson, are often billionaires. But many of them, such as the Wright Brothers, struggled to fund their exploits. What characteristics did these pioneers share? Max will provide insights into some of the inspiring aviators whose achievements have been recognised by the FAI. Some are household names – Neil Armstrong, Amelia Earhart, a few, like Hanna Reitsch, are notorious. Most - Steve Fossett, Sabiha Gökcen, Ann Welch, Eric Brown, Fedor Konyukhov - remain in the shadows but deserve to be better known.

This kick-off event will be followed by a fortnightly agenda concluding on Wednesday 16th March with a presentation by Natalie Daffenbaugh on one of the major issues of our time ~ immigration detention.
