Q&A with the Organizing Committee of the SAE 2015 International Conference on Icing of Aircraft, Engines, and Structures

Question #1: Why should professionals from industry attend the SAE 2015 Icing Conference?

"This is a unique event bringing together professionals active with icing from around the globe. This is the single event to get up to date with the latest developments both in systems and regulations."
Ferdinand Spek
Technical Consultant, ADSE Consultancy & Engineering
"There are many reasons that justify attendance. The most obvious is the presentation of the results of current technical work, but equally important is the face-to-face contact and networking among the experts in the field of aviation icing. Attendees will return to their organization with a greater knowledge of challenges and solutions for icing problems."
Robert J. Flemming
Retired Sikorsky Aircraft Technical Fellow, and Co-chair of the 2015 SAE International Conference on Icing of Aircraft, Engines, and Structures
"Given the FAA's release of major, long-anticipated regulations on SLD, mixed-phase and ice crystal icing, now is a pivotal time to meet with colleagues whose work will be affected by such rules."
