The theme of the symposium is:
Finding the edge, setting the limits

Chuck Yeager said:”Flight testing is potentially dangerous”. The flight test engineer is challenged to meet the test objectives without compromising flight and system safety.
Preparing a flight test programme requires a solid understanding of the flight tests to be performed, regulatory knowledge, limitation of the aircraft and means to deal with risk analyses and mitigation within his flight test organization. Papers reflecting these challenges will be favoured in the evaluation of papers. The abstract should especially point out the connection to the theme.
