The Society of Experimental Test Pilots
Virtual Symposium – 16 April 2021
Due to the cancelation of individual Section events, SETP will host a Virtual Symposium on 16 April 2021 to continue the Society’s mission of sharing lessons learned within the flight test community. The purpose of this Symposium is to share the knowledge gained in the course of planning, execution and documentation of flight test activities. The intent of the Symposium is to help prevent re-learning of hard lessons through cross pollination of the ideas and discoveries from our seemingly different, yet similar and related areas of flight test.
