About the Speaker – Dr Phil Charlesworth – FOG (Ex- Airbus, RAF)

Dr Phil Charlesworth was inspired to follow a career in aerospace by watching the moon landing as a child.  He spent 16 years as an engineering officer in the Royal Air Force working on satellite and long haul communications systems.  His interest in space and satellites led him to the research arm of Airbus where, among other things, he worked on next-generation military satellites and solar aircraft.  In his spare time, he is an enthusiastic amateur rocketeer, designing and building his own rockets.  He chairs the only amateur rocketry club in Wales.  He is the safety and technical adviser for UKRoC, the UK component of a schools rocketry competition that runs across the UK, USA, France and Japan.
