Aerospace Standards, Regulations and Economics on the Agenda for September SAE International Meeting

WARRENDALE, Pa., May 7, 2013 - Aerospace industry and government leaders from around the world will gather for SAE International’s 2013 Aerospace Government and Industry Meeting, which will be held Sept. 23, 2013, at Palais des congrés de Montréal in Montreal, Quebec.

This one-day meeting will discuss how government regulations and policies affect the design, manufacture, and production of current and future civil, military, space, and aircraft vehicles. The format of this unique event will be a series of single presentations, each followed by a panel discussion. The panels, which will consist of industry leaders and members from government regulatory agencies, will address the critical issues around the topic that was presented.

The main topics of discussion will include:

- Economics

- Regulatory

- Emissions (Air/Noise)

- Standards

- Safety

Due to the nature of this meeting, the presentations are less technical than traditional SAE International symposiums. Individuals who wish to attend conferences which discuss these technologies in more depth should also consider SAE 2013 AeroTech Congress and Exhibition – which will be held immediately following this event.
