President's Message

E-mail Print PDF

Welcome to the SETP site. I’m honored to serve as your President; the members of your Board of Directors and I consider it a privilege to serve the needs of our membership. During my tenure, I will do my best to get out to where the work is being done and listen to your visions for the Society.

I need to thank Doug Benjamin and his Board of Directors for handing me the stick with the Society well-trimmed and humming along efficiently. Despite the significant challenges that the Sequester thrust upon the Society, our mission of improving flight test safety through the sharing of lessons learned was accomplished. We did feel the effects of Sequester however. The international symposium held in Anaheim was lightly attended by US DoD and US Military personal meaning our lessons learned are not reaching everyone that needs to hear them. There is a financial impact to the light attendance as well but I am most concerned that the new military test pilot school graduates missed an opportunity to see what SETP can do for the serious career test pilot. Fortunately, our regional symposia have been extremely well attended and the quality and quantity of technical papers presented this year is the highest it has ever been.

My goal as President of your SETP is to ensure that our mission continues to be accomplished. The best way to accomplish our mission is through the face to face sharing of lessons learned. That means to continue to support the execution of well attended technical symposia and meet the financial challenges that face us in that endeavor. A supplement to the technical symposia is provided by the SETP website. It is through the website that members who are not able to attend the symposia can reap the benefits of the symposia by reviewing the written papers or podcasts.

With this in mind, my priorities for the 2013/2014 year are as follows:

  1. Continue to be good custodians of SETP resources. This means addressing the financial impact of Sequester while being mindful of SETP’s long term obligations. Reducing spending where necessary and increasing revenues when possible while maintaining infrastructure and quality in all we do.
  2. Finish the SETP.org website improvements begun over a year ago. Launch the new and improved website which includes improved search features and social media-like applications that will allow our members to share lessons learned much more fluidly.
  3. Re-engage the UAV development committee. Rogers Smith, SETP past president, chairs this committee and I will work with Rogers to expand the reach of our lessons learned to UAV testers and also to expand the respect and influence that our members have within this community.
  4. Expand membership. I continue to hear stories of people that are qualified to be members but are not and of problems with the application process. We will resolve these issues, reach out to potential members that have fallen through the cracks, and seek members in new locations. Ground work has already begun by Doug Benjamin to investigate the viability of a Japan Section and a Brazil Section.

The SETP year kicks off with our first Board meeting in Lancaster on October 24th, followed by the Southwest Section symposium in Dallas-Fort Worth on October 28th. I plan on attending all of the regional symposia throughout the year and I look forward to seeing many of you there.

Fly Safe,

Kevin Prosser

Section 1.  Primary Purposes 

To promote that part of the aeronautical endeavor wherein there lies the moral obligation of the test pilot to the airplane passenger, the commercial, private and service pilot, without affecting the competitive structure of industry. 

To promote education of members, of those directly associated with aeronautical activities, and of the general public concerning those endeavors peculiar to the profession of the experimental test pilot. 

Section 2. General Purposes 

To promote air safety by presenting pilot opinion; to maintain cognizance of new flight equipment already adopted or in development; to exchange ideas, experiences and information regarding airplane escape systems and techniques; and to otherwise aid in the advancement of flight safety. 

To promote technical advancement by providing for professional education through lectures, displays and presentations and by the exchange of information for mutual development of improved test techniques. 

To promote sound aeronautical design and development; to describe and discuss newly encountered phenomena in the realm of flight for the mutual benefit of all, within the bounds of the primary purpose of this corporation and governmental security regulations;  and to provide a society where the interchange of ideas, thoughts and suggestions concerning the aircraft as it affects the pilot will ultimately result in aid to the designer. 

To broaden professional relationships among members; to maintain and increase the prestige, standing and influence of the test pilot in aeronautical progress; to assist in the professional development of experimental pilots; to provide scholarships and otherwise aid the families of deceased members; to provide scholarships and otherwise aid members in receiving education and graduate work in flight technique and safety; and to otherwise contribute to aeronautical advancement.
