Flight Test Safety Committee
Have you subscribed to the Flight Test Safety Podcast? You can find instructions inside this month's newsletter. We'd like your feedback on the podcast as well as suggestions for future episodes.
Also this month, Ben Luther and Jeff Canclini share a conversation they've been having, back and forth, for almost a full year about complexity and chaos, risk and flight test safety. The authors introduce another paper about these topics you should read: The author, Bob Barham, allowed us to share that paper with you, and you can find it as an attachment inside this month's newsletter, as pictured here.
Finally, remember that there's less than a month until nominations for the Levier Award are due, and you can find out how to inside this issue.
Please share this with someone who may not receive it, and send any feedback to us. (Don't confuse those two.)

Have you submitted your presentation proposal for the Flight Test Safety Workshop? The deadline is closer than you think--you can read the call for papers inside this edition of the Flight Test Safety Fact.

Flight Test Safety Committee Board member John Hed writes this month's feature column, and in a separate piece, he also explains how to join the FTSC LinkedIn group.
I'd also like to welcome members of the AIAA Flight Test Committee--many of whom have just been added to our email distribution. Thanks Starr Ginn for making that happen!
Many people are writing, giving feedback, and submitting articles. Thank you, and keep them coming. I hope to see you in Niceville on the 21st for the combined AIAA/SFTE/SETP Southeast Symposium
