“Please join us on 10th April, for a fantastic opportunity to hear the latest update on the new “Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers”.
The projection of air power from the sea is a vital military capability and the two new Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers represent an important centrepiece to the UK’s naval inventory. The ships enable the perpetuation of the UK’s Carrier Strike capability, replacing the Invincible Class. This talk examines the requirement for Aircraft Carriers in general and explains the contractual construct of the Aircraft Carrier Alliance formed to build the ships. The ship design is explained and an update on the progress of the shipbuilding programme. The challenges of supporting the ships once they enter service are also outlined.
The event is free to attend and is open to all regardless of IMechE membership status. Please register to allow the organiser to cater for the numbers.
