2017 Flight Test Safety Workshop - Registration Open

The 2017 Flight Test Safety Workshop will be held on 2-4 May 2017 in McLean, VA.

The theme of the workshop is "I/We learned a lot about flight test from that.....".   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" themselves, 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.

This year’s Workshop Tutorial will be presented by Mr. William Higgins and Mr. Daniel Boorman of The Boeing Company. The subject will be "Developing Critical Checklists".
