The Long Island Chapter of the Society of Flight Test Engineers will sponsor a nation-wide symposium on October 6, 7 and 8, 1970, to exchange information and foster understanding of flight testing as it will be conducted in the 1970’s. A forum will be provided for the presentation of ideas and accomplishments linking advanced testing and computing techniques. Prime airframe contractors, government test agencies, data processing representatives and data acquisition specialists are being asked to participate. The symposium will discuss mutual problems of the flight test community in implementing technological advances and in applying new techniques.

Papers dealing with this subject are invited from all interested sources for presentation at the symposium.
