International conference on small research aircraft. bb


January 28, 2002

The First International Workshop of the Network of Airborne Environmental Research Scientists is now taking place, hosted by the Air Resources Laboratory’s Field Research Division in Idaho Falls, ID. The conference is concentrating on the use of light aircraft as research platforms, with particular emphasis on technological advances and safety issues. The timeliness of the conference has been demonstrated by the broad international attendance, and by a wide recognition that experimental class aircraft now constitute 20% of the US government fleet – the fastest growing segment.
