We were able to get permission to conduct our first educational meeting at the Indian Air Force Test Pilots School (IAFTPS) at Bangalore on 27 Nov 2020. During the current pandemic, there are no guest lectures being allowed by IAFTPS but we were able to follow up with the Commandant and get permission to conduct the talk.
The talk was conducted for the benefit of the test pilots and flight test engineers under training currently. All the students and faculty of IAFTPS attended, with three SETP India Chapter members presenting. The talk was entitled “Flight Test and the Test Pilot” and covered flight test safety, code of professional ethics and an accident case study in the first part and details about SETP in the second part.
