Dear friends & colleagues,
Just as every year this year too, HAS organizes its annual banquet Wright Dinner on Wednesday 17 December in memoriam of the first heavier than air flight by the Wright Brothers in 1903.

This year event concurs with our 10th anniversary as scientific entity and gets an extra weight of symbolic nature for those who are its true believers and have worked relentlessly to fulfill its purpose and ideas.

These ideas are not self-contained in an expert scientific framework only, but extent well beyond reaching out the broader fields of a civilized society. To this end, all the monies of the gathering will go to charity to some of our fellow citizens who happen to be deprived of proper joy of life like most of us do.

Our meeting point is the restaurant ‘’Το 21’’ found in the iconic Athenian neighbourhood of Psyri in Monastiraki area. Apart from the good feast and boozes, our evening will be garnished with “The voyage of Aviation’’, a melodic saxophone duet and the in-house band. Participation fee is 25 euro/person.

Moreover, we would be thankful to all of you should we be able to get some extra complementary aid of symbolic amount from companies or organizations in order to increase the social contribution of our event.

It would be our pleasure to have all of you with us along with your friends.
