NAAG was founded at the end of 1979, by a small group of Norwich Airport and Air Anglia personnel. In addition to being a club where like-minded enthusiasts can meet to share their interest in many aspects of aviation, it also promotes the local airport and associated companies. Originally meetings were held in the airport terminal building, but a steady increase in flights and tighter security arrangements necessitated the move to Anglian Windows Sports and Social Club. However we have now relocated to SaxonAir at Klyne Business Aviation Centre, at the airport.
At the meetings speakers from at home and abroad give talks on a wide range of aviation-related topics, both civil and military, past and present. These have included both civil and military pilots, old and young, covering a wide range of aircraft types from Spitfire to Concorde. Pilots from the Red Arrows, a Concorde captain, a Spitfire pilot and the RAF Presentation Team have been amongst the guest presenters. Some talks are of a more personal nature, recounting for example WW2 experiences, service or civilian careers. Aviation museums and aircraft restoration projects are amongst other topics, which have also included the more technical aspects of flying such as aviation medicine, airport fire services and air traffic control.
Anyone interested in the Group’s activities is most welcome to attend as a guest. Meetings are usually held on the first Wednesday evening of the month.
