The Society was founded in 1987 to support and celebrate the achievements of the Australian flight test community.
The Society holds an annual symposium that serves as a forum for Australia flight test personnel to discuss recent activities and engage in the promotion of a professional, technically relevent and safe Australian flight test community.
The Society has affiliations with the Society of Experimental Test Pilots (SETP), the Society of Flight Test Engineers (SFTE) and the Royal Aeronautical Society. The membership is broad, including past and present personnel from Australian military flight test organisations, as well as members from Australia's leading universities and aerospace companies.
Expert presentations from the international flight test fraternity are usually a feature of the symposium convened in conjunction with the Airshow.
