Talking Avro and space

If you have any interest in the Avro Arrow or space travel, you won’t want to miss tonight’s presentation of Arrows to the Moon: Avro’s Engineers and the Space Race.

The Parksville-Qualicum AERO Club has invited author and historian of technology, Christopher Gainor, for an evening of reflection at 7 p.m. tonight (May 6) at the PQAC Clubhouse, 1000 Ravensbourne Lane, Unit 9, in Qualicum Beach.

Gainor will share his insights about the contribution made to NASA and the Space Race by the Avro Arrow’s Engineers and Scientists. Gainor is the international space programs editor for Quest: The History of Spaceflight Quarterly and is a regular contributor to the Canadian edition of Space Quarterly.   He is second Vice President of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, and a Fellow of the British Interplanetary Society.

The meeting is open to PQAC members and non-members.  Due to limited space, please reserve your seat(s) in advance by contacting Club President Fred Evoy at 250-248-7680 or by e-mail at gwfevoy@shaw.ca.
