The first SFTE international symposium took place in 1970 and has rotated through almost all Chapters since then until this, the 50th event. By a lucky coincidence, 2019 will also mark the 30th symposium organised by the European Chapter.


After the pioneering years of aeronautics characterised by individual nations competing to develop their own industries and outstrip the enemy, aerospace and therefore flight testing has been increa-singly focussed on international cooperation, requiring the exchange of skills and knowledge from multiple cultures and technical backgrounds. What better occasion than an international symposium held on European soil to celebrate that cooperation, and to learn from our collective 80 symposia?
