Test flying is arguably one of the most exacting and exciting areas of the aerospace design and development process. To be done safely and effectively it requires teams of highly trained technical professionals to work together in unique and challenging circumstances.

In this talk, Bristol Aerospace alumni, Chartered Engineer and qualified Experimental Test Pilot, Julian Lee (Nova Systems UK) will describe exactly how flight test programmes are conceived and delivered as well as looking at routes into a career in this field.

Light refreshments afterwards - all welcome.

*Careers Service Drop-in* For an hour after the seminar, Ellen, the Faculty of Engineering Employability Adviser (Careers Service) will be available in the foyer of the Merchant Venturers Building (upper atrium) for students to drop in and talk about anything careers related, including any queries, CV advice and how to access further support.
