Welcome to the COPPERSTATE 2020 Forums page!


If you have an area of aviation expertise you’d like to share with the community of aviation enthusiasts, please e-mail us at the addresses shown below (please send your message to both of us so we’ll be less likely to miss it). In your message, please list the title of your presentation, the name of the speaker, company affiliation (if any), and your preference for day and time. Please see the forum's schedule on this site for the available time slots. We’ll try to accommodate your preference on a first-come, first-served basis. As you see on the forum's schedule, time slots are 55 minutes maximum, to allow audiences time to exit before the next audience enters. (Please note that the FAAST forums do not necessarily start on the hour, but in some cases, the half-hour.)

We provide 20×30 foot tents in the Forums Plaza, each seating approximately 60 people. Each tent is equipped with a whiteboard and markers, 120 VAC power, and a public address system. Video projectors are available for your presentation, projected on the whiteboard; Tent #2 will have a 46" flat-screen TV and tents #3 & #4 will have 32" flat-screen TVs. 

To get your forum in the COPPERSTATE program, you must sign up by January 24, 2020.
