Friend of the Society Award

Sponsored by SETP

The Friend of the Society was established in 1995 as a means for the Society of Experimental Test Pilots to pay tribute to individuals or organizations who have provided an exceptional and notable contribution to the operation and the objectives of the Society. The Friend of the Society is not a member of SETP and there is no requirement for a Friend of the Society to be awarded every year. Honorees will be announced at the annual Awards Banquet where they will receive public recognition and a commemorative plaque. The identity of the Honoree(s) is maintained secret until the award's announcement.
