Why Attend

What this conference does is you see the ideas being born… technologies on the verge of being flown…you literally see it…you go each year and you see these technologies…you watch them progress from birth through the maturation process, to flight. Then they fly it, and they come back to tell the world whether the thing worked or not. This is where the entire R&D lifecycle is laid out….—Guy Norris and Graham Warwick, Aviation Week and Space Technology Podcast
