Registration is open for the Flight Test Safety Workshop:

The Flight Test Safety Committee (FTSC) will hold the North American Flight Test Safety Workshop from 2-4 May 2017 in McLean, VA. The purpose of the Safety Workshop is to provide an open forum where flight test safety issues can be presented, discussed and probed with other members and disciplines of the flight test community. LCDR Colin Chance, USN, is coordinating the event.  Workshop attendees are eligible to receive Continuing Education Credits through Embry-Riddle University. A certificate will be provided if requested.

The theme of the workshop is “I/We learned a lot about flight test from…”  Everyone involved in flight test (and aviation for that matter) has had at least one incident or story that has molded and changed the way they operate.  Whether it was a ground incident, flight mishap, or simply a time when a tester “scared” himself, these events left such an impression on the individual, organization, manufacturer, or industry that it forever changed the way they approach flight test.  In some cases, these lessons learned were adopted by the entire flight test community. In other cases it was only the individual that adopted a new approach. Whatever the impact, these are important events and lessons learned in the storied history of flight test.  It is time to revisit our past and share some of these stories to prevent mishaps in the future.

The workshop sponsors include the following: Gulfstream. Northrop Grumman, The Boeing Company (Audio Visual). And KBRwyle (dinner).
