The 2019 Aircraft Airworthiness & Sustainment (AA&S) Conference is the recognized premier conference of breaking-edge technology and research, in the critical area of airworthiness and sustainment, for the military and commercial aerospace industry. This conference draws the top researchers throughout the world in the widely varied field of airworthiness and sustainment issues. This conference has consistently demonstrated that it delivers leading scientists, designers, engineers, and program managers for government, industry, and academia in one place. At this time we have, commitments from FAA, NASA, and USAF to have exhibits. The exhibits highlight current and future airworthiness & sustainment technology/initiatives which increase the life and safety of military and commercial aircraft systems and enable advanced performance capabilities.

The mission of this conference is to identify the challenges and the collaborative work being done within the aerospace community in improving the safety, airworthiness, availability, and cost effectiveness of both our military and commercial aircraft fleets. The battle of maintaining an aging fleet with the numerous resource and engineering challenges is a primary focus. Three session types will be offered:

  1. Airworthiness
  2. Sustainment
  3. Training

The 2019 Propulsion Safety and Sustainment (PS&S) Conference mission is to proactively address or prevent problems with safety, readiness, reliability, and sustainment within the tri-Service turbine engine fleet, through the transition of existing and emerging technologies. Three session types will be offered:

  1. Materials
  2. Application
  3. Training
