    Cross-posted from VFS Flight Test Council:
    More than a few members noted frustration about OEM leaders not understanding the depth of knowledge necessary to certify an aircraft. The goal of this free webinar is to give those with nil cert experience a sense of what is required so they can plan for proper hiring and training. Please spread the word to your organizations and elsewhere.
    "Things Startups Should Know About Certification Flight Test"
    The E-VTOL Flight Test Council is organizing a free 90-minute webinar aimed at helping startup companies understand the flight test depth required to bring an electric aircraft to certification.

    • Instrumentation vetting 
    • How much data is needed to validate models and satisfy authorities
    • FAA-required processes
