2014 Flight Test Safety Workshop - Call for Papers

 

Flight Test Safety Workshop ~ 13 ~ 15 May 2014

Hilton Savannah DeSoto

15 East Liberty Street

Savannah, GA 31401

 

Official Call for Papers

The theme of the workshop is “Ah-hah moments in flight test: discovery and close calls - what we learned and the resulting tactics, techniques and procedures to test safely.” The flight test community prides itself on thorough planning and hazard analysis to reduce risk as low as reasonably practicable. Residual risk, unplanned factors, and anomalous aircraft/system behavior challenge test teams to detect and react, many times instinctively, to an adverse situation. The goal of this workshop is to share personal, team or program experience when test results did not meet predictions or expectations, or when intervention strategies were implemented in planning  -or real-time- to preclude a hazardous outcome.

Presentations may be more than 25 minutes - please indicate the desired length for program accomodation.  Please send paper/presentation proposals to the 2014 Flight Test Safety Workshop Chairman, Mr. Tom Huff via This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
