Mountbatten intro image  The oldest independent air force in the world is celebrating its centenary this year.

2018 is all about commemoration, celebration and inspiration for the RAF – three words that are also synonymous with IET EngTalks.

Air Marshal Julian Young will provide you with insight as to why the Royal Air Force is often cited as being one of the most technologically advanced military forces globally.

He will jump forward another 100 years and explore the technologies that he believes are certainties as well as some that are fantastical but by no means impossible!

You’ll hear about some of the current engineering challenges and those still to be overcome. None more so than the ‘human dimension’ – how will people fit into an RAF filled with AI, robotics, autonomy and fast paced concept to service technology?

Book your free seat to share a glimpse of the future, of RAF 2118!
