DateSeptember 1946-October 1952
DescriptionThe Committee was established by the Aeronautical research Council in October 1946 'to study the basic problems of the RAF aircraft and their operation, and to advise the Council on research needed to solve these problems'.

Blackett was Chairman of the Committee, which had official and independent members. The Senior Secretary was J.L. Naylor.

The ARC also established a Sub-Committee to handle similar problems of Naval research (N.A.R.C), of which Blackett was Chairman. No papers remain specifically related to this Sub-committee, though there are references to meetings, overlapping interests, etc. in the correspondence in this section.
