2017 Flight Test Safety Workshop
2-4 May 2017
Hilton McLean Tysons Corner Hotel
7920 Jones Branch Drive
McLean, VA. 22102
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.
The deadline for abstracts has been extended to 1 March 2017 to allow time for appropriate consideration and inclusion in the program.
