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.

New Keystone Panel Schedule for 2018

In order to help streamline the conference for attendees, all 4 of the Keystone Panel Sessions will be held on Tuesday, April 24, 2018.


More Options in 2018

NEW! This year the AA&S agenda will once again showcase four separate Keystone Panels dealing with overarching topics impacting our airworthiness and sustainment audiences. In our continuing commitment to provide value for your invested time and based upon past attendee surveys, one opposing topic session will be offered at the same time as some of the Keystone Panels on Tuesday. In all cases you will note that a “Sustainment” focused Keystone is paired with an “Airworthiness” focused concurrent session and vice versa allowing options for our valued attendees!
