The Society of Flight Test Engineers - SFTE for short - is a fraternity of engineers, whose principal professional interest is the flight testing of aircraft (fixed and rotary wing) and missiles. The objective of the Society is the advancement of flight test engineering throughout the aircraft industry by providing technical and fraternal communication among individuals, both domestic and international, in the engineering fields of test operations, analysis, instrumentation and data systems.
The European Chapter - SFTE EC - extends this association for the benefit of both Americans and Europeans. For membership, a rather elastic definition of the term "European" is applied.
The 27th Symposium of the SFTE European Chapter will take place in May 10th-12th 2016 in Nuremberg, Germany, in collaboration with the 36th European Telemetry and Test Conference etc2016.
