There are very few visions of the future that do not show us traveling through space like we do through the air. While commercial aviation is celebrating its 100th year, in another 100 more, we will do the same for civil space transport. The dream has always been to reach the stars - and aviation is a good stepping stone to start from.
This joint International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) / United Nations Office of Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) Aerospace Symposium will bring together for the first time both aviation and space communities from around the globe to explore existing regulations and practices as well as safety management and systems engineering methods with regard to civil aviation, suborbital flights and developments in space transportation. The event will be an opportunity for networking, collaboration and coordination between States, industry, and others.
An industry exhibit will showcase the breadth of existing technologies, research and development activities of this new aerospace industry sector.
The entire international community is invited and encouraged to take part in this landmark event.
