Farnborough Air Sciences Museum


Bound Technical Volumes


























The Library holds significant volumes of early research from throughout the world, (USA, Canada, Europe, Japan etc.) previously housed in the Historical Section of the RAE Library.

It also possesses a wide range of Aeronautical Research Council (ARC) Annual Reports, Research & Memoranda (R&M) and Current Papers (CP) and reports from other Government Research Laboratories, all held in bound volumes.

Significant amongst these are publications from the National Gas Turbine Establishment (NGTE). The early volumes of the annual reports of the Advisory Council for Aeronautics are also held, with volumes from 1909 to 1922, when they morphed into the ARC.
