The 2020 Sir John Slessor Lecture, The Royal Navy - Pioneering a New Era of Military Capability, HMS Queen Elizabeth, the F-35 and Carrier Task Group Aviation will take place at the Members' Dining Room, House of Commons, Palace of Westminster from 4.00pm - 6.00pm on Wednesday 26th February 2020.

The Queen Elizabeth class carriers' will deliver an unsurpassed military capability to the UK and represent the best of Britain, both militarily and industrially. The Royal Navy, supported by British industry has been developing world leading expertise which has seen this once in a lifetime opportunity to ‘write the manual’ for carrier operations.

The lecture follows an intensive period for HMS Queen Elizabeth over recent months which has included Westlant 19 where the carrier and its air wing have been pushed to the limits. The deployment has also heralded a renaissance of carrier strike capability and the global influence it creates for the UK. Cdr Ed Phillips (Commander Air), has led the trials and integration programme which includes the F-35, rotary wing aircraft, as of course collaboration with the United States Marine Corps. The lecture will provide key insights into the Royal Navy’s endeavours which are genuinely pioneering a new era of military capability for the UK.

This year’s event will be a 45 minute networking reception, a 30 minute lecture delivered by Cdr Ed Phillips RN, followed by a Q&A session.
