They do seem to have some fascinating tours; its quite a good society by the looks of it! I attended a talk by the RAF in 2002 (can't remebr the topic ), but as I recall it was a great night, very enjoyable presentation and you get free parking for the events. I've seen talks advertised by Airbus UK, MyTravel, Manchester Airport management, Jet2 and similar.
It isn't expensive to join either, and you get a monthly magazine. If I lived closer to MAN, I'd join!

I used to be a member b4 i moved away, i'd say it's well worth joining. They have cheap coach trips (as mentioned above) and they have trips further away available too. Their monthly 'magazine' was excellent.......if you pop into one of their shops you'll be able to have a look through one. They usually have a trade show event (can't think exactly how to word it) at T2's Atlantic suite (i might have then ame wrong, it's been a while) and believe they give out tickets for free parking (or 1/2 price, memory is getting bad, lol). It's well worth joining though, it's money well spent.
The only thing that spoiled it for me was that there is a very TINY minority of people in there that are complete and utter ar$eholes, but that's not up for discussion here!
Ps....when you're done with their newsletters, send them to me, hahahaha

I used to subscribe to their magazine, Winged Words, which was fantastic for the North Atlantic tie ups; this was a long time before ACARS ever became public knowledge! Another good one, probably better for me coming fom London, was The Stansted Aviation Society which basically was the same sort of thing albeit for us Southerners!!

When I was in MAn last year I was invited to a meeting. There would have been 200-300 people there. That meeting someone from Airbus gave a talk on the A380 in particular where the wings are made and how they are transported to France.
Speak to someone who works at the AVP, that is how I found out about it.
