This year’s Technical Symposium focuses on informing our audience and our membership of ways in which innovations in aerospace are redefining technological boundaries, creating new and improved aircraft and flight related systems, and expanding exploration opportunities in all aspects of flight and space travel.

The presentations in the Symposium will reveal the ways in which the presenters have found solutions for difficult problems and overcome obstacles by working together as a team. These experiences will show different ways of breaking through the technical, business, social and political barriers that we all face every day and, in that respect, we believe everyone will benefit from discussions at the Symposium.

Join us for cutting-edge speaker and panels including a Keynote session from:

Dr. Paul Bevilaqua
