Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 13 July 2018 is Advisory Committee for Aeronautics.
The Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (ACA) was a United Kingdom agency founded on 30 April 1909, to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. In 1919 it was renamed the Aeronautical Research Committee, later becoming the Aeronautical Research Council.
Following the establishment of this committee, other countries created similar agencies, notably the French L’Etablissement Central de l’Aérostation Militaire in Meudon (now Office National d'Etudes et de Recherches Aerospatiales), the Russian "Aerodynamic Institute of Koutchino" and the U.S.A.'s National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, founded in 1915.
The Aeronautical Research Council was disbanded in 1979.
