The 23rd SFTE European Chapter Symposium will be held at National Aerospace Laboratory NLR premises in Amsterdam, The Netherlands from the 11th to the 13th of June 2012.

The local organization of the symposium is in the hands of the Netherlands Association of Aeronautical Engineers NVvL and National Aerospace Laboratory NLR.

You and your colleagues / organizations are hereby invited to submit papers for presentation during the symposium.

The theme of the symposium is:
Finding the edge, setting the limits

Chuck Yeager said:”Flight testing is potentially dangerous”. The flight test engineer is challenged to meet the test objectives without compromising flight and system safety.
Preparing a flight test programme requires a solid understanding of the flight tests to be performed, regulatory knowledge, limitation of the aircraft and means to deal with risk analyses and mitigation within his flight test organization. Papers reflecting these challenges will be favoured in the evaluation of papers. The abstract should especially point out the connection to the theme.

Deadline for abstracts: 15 February 2012.
