Swedish Society for Aeronautics and Astronautics
Member since: 1960
The Swedish Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics, FTF, is a non-profit and independent association for promoting aerospace technology activities in Sweden. The Society constitutes since 1968 a merger of the Swedish Society for Aeronautics and Astronautics formed in 1933, and the Swedish Interplanetary Society established in 1950. Currently, the Society has about 1500 members in the six local branches in Stockholm, Linköping, Göteborg, Trollhättan, Kiruna and Malmö.
The Society organises lectures on aerospace technology and publishes a quarterly electronic newsletter Bevingat. Every year the Society awards the Thulin medal to reward distinctive achievements within aerospace technology.
Every third year the Society holds an Aerospace Technology Congress with more than 150 oral paper presentations and an Exhibition of products and services, gathering more than 350 delegates. The next congress will be held together with the International Council of Aeronautical Sciences, ICAS, in September 2022, and we expect more than 700 delegates to convene in Stockholm.
