The International Aircraft Materials Fire Test Forum meets three times per year. One meeting is held in Atlantic City, New Jersey, area, one meeting is held at a host organization at another location in North America, and one meeting is hosted by an organization outside the United States. Issues and concerns in the area of aircraft materials fire safety testing are discussed with emphasis on the current test methods.

For the upcoming meeting, topics to be discussed will include the OSU/NBS test methods, Bunsen burner test method, oil burner for seats and cargo liners. Presentations and updates of round robin tests.

Forum attendees are welcome to open a discussion on any new topic in the aircraft materials fire safety area. This forum is open to anyone in the international community in industry, government , and academia with an interest in aircraft materials fire safety and testing.

Forums Meeting Redesign: This meeting will be the first in-person meeting in which the two (2) formerly independent forums (IAMFTF and IASFPF) will be integrated. During the pandemic, the forum meetings were held virtually with a surprisingly high degree of participation. In order to maximize participation and minimize travel and venue costs, we have decided to combine the forum meetings and offer virtual discussion where appropriate. In addition, we are structuring the meeting based on our internal Research Project Areas (RPAs). The RPAs include Cabin Safety, Hazardous Materials Safety, Cargo Compartment Fire Suppression, and Engine/Powerplant Fire Protection.
