NWAA are excited to be hosting its 9th Annual Conference. The theme of this year’s conference will be….

The Growth of Advanced Engineering & Manufacturing in A Digital World

As the North West Aerospace Alliance (NWAA) proudly marks three decades of innovation and excellence, we invite you to join us for an extraordinary experience at the Concorde Conference Centre. This year’s Annual Conference is not just a milestone celebration; it’s a journey back to the remarkable year of 1994, when NWAA took flight into the aerospace realm.

From Space to Aviation there were lots of firsts to celebrate in 1994

  • 1994: Clementine: NASA/DOD mission changed our view of the moon, its objective to map the moons surface.
  • 1994: Maj. Jackie Parker become the first U.S. woman to be qualified as an F-16 combat fighter.
  • 1994: Boeing 777, the world’s largest long-range widebody twinjet, made its maiden flight.
  • 1994: Vicki Van Meter, age 12, became the youngest pilot to make a transatlantic flight in a Cessna 210
  • 1994: Test flight of Boeing 777; the first aircraft to be designed entirely on a computer
  • 1994: The K-Max “aerial truck” designed and built by Kaman became the first helicopter designed for repetitive lift operations.

Join Us for An Event to Remember in The Hangar

Join us for an unforgettable event in the iconic Hangar, offering a unique backdrop under the wings of the legendary Concorde G-BOAC. This aviation masterpiece, the flagship of the British Airways fleet, takes pride of place inside the purpose-built super hangar. With exceptional speakers and the historic Concorde as our setting, the 9th Annual Conference promises to be an event that will linger in the memories of our delegates and speakers.

Delegate tickets include end of day Concorde guided tours

As a special treat, delegate tickets include end-of-day Concorde tours. Imagine reliving the experience of air travel in the Concorde, even sitting in a seat once occupied by someone famous. In 2003, the standard return fare from London to New York was a mere £6,636. Discover fascinating facts about Concorde, such as its staggering fuel consumption of 25,629 litres per hour and the over one million bottles of champagne consumed on Concorde passenger flights.
