The Canadian Section of The Society of Experimental Test Pilots invites you to join us at our annual regional symposium on Thursday, 9 June 2022 at the Holiday Inn and Suites Kanata, Ottawa, Ontario. The Symposium is a venue to share knowledge gained in the course of planning and executing flight test activities. The intent of the Symposium is to help prevent re-learning hard lessons through cross pollination of the ideas and discoveries from our seemingly different, yet similar and related areas of flight test. Perry Comeau (AF) of National Research Council of Canada is the Chairman for this event.
You do not need to be a Member to attend this Symposium
