The object of the "Swiss Association of Aeronautical Sciences" (SVFW) is the advancement of the aeronautical Sciences in Switzerland and the presentation of topics to this field as well as providing opportunities for contacts among specialists.
To realise these goals it organizes lectures on actual topics from the field of aeronautical sciences about once per month. They are normally held in the premises of the Federal Institute of Technology Zurich or directly in the location of the presenting industry. About twice per year an industry-visit in Switzerland or neighbouring country will be organised.
The Association supports the education in the field of aeronautical sciences.
The AAGZ (flying students Zurich) is a member of the association. The association itself is a member of Aerosuisse, CEAS and ICAS.
