SFTE member fatality

The membership of the European Chapter would like to express our sincere regrets over the loss of ‘Galactic’ and the tragic loss of Michael Alsbury. We of the flight test community follow our chosen profession with great enthusiasm, aware of the risks and try our hardest to minimise these wherever possible.

Most of us are aware of and depend upon the support of our loved ones as we pursue our dreams in an exacting profession, absorbed by the thrill of adventure, and technical advance working with colleagues we rely upon for our whole wellbeing.It is easy to forget that we are not alone, our families are always with us and face the consequences of any misadventure.

It is difficult to think of anything appropriate to say when the worst happens, such occurrences are less frequent, since the flight test community has grouped together with safety as our prime concern. Those of us who have experienced similar situations, are aware of a sense of loss, and try even harder to prevent a recurrence

Our group is affected in just such a way now, and although distance robbed us of the privilege of knowing Michael well, we are deeply aware of a sense of loss.

Please be aware of our love and support.

The SFTE EC Symposium 2014 - Registration

The combined European SETP and SFTE Flight Test Symposium will provide an excellent opportunity to share lessons learned, best practices and test technology advancements.
The symposium will be held in Luleå, Sweden 15th to 18th June 2014.


Registration is now available
TESTING TOGETHER is chosen as the symposium theme to reflect the importance of collaboration needed to perform successful flight testing.
What can we learn from each other?
Most flight testing is planned, performed and reported within the scope of test teams. But what is a good test team? How should the test teams be organized? How do Test Pilots, Test Engineers and Managers organize and control the activities needed to perform efficient testing? Does the actual system under test, from fixed wing to helicopter; slow to fast; small to large; manned to unmanned, make a difference?

The following website will guide on how to register for the symposium and will also keep you updated on the latest information:
