    The European FSTD Technical Group (EFTeG) was chartered as a result of feedback from recent FSEMC conferences. The flight simulation industry perceived a need for a forum for simulator operators that are subject to EASA regulations to discuss technical issues. This forum is also intended for EASA flight simulation regulatory representatives to discuss regulatory qualification and compliance questions with operators. 

    The format is an informal, round table open forum. All are invited to openly speak and discuss topics with your peers in the industry. The schedule and agenda can be expected to be fluid.

    Registration for this meeting is closed. Please contact Sam Buckwalter with any questions or concerns.
