Regarding rapid growth in aviation and air transportation sectors aerospace technology evolves by leaps in recent century. Technologic innovations and progress leads novel areas and further technological advances. Beside the technological achievements MRO centers and MRO sector spreads wider all over the world dependent to the interest in air transportation. Preference of the society is designated to be airway instead of other transportation options. As a result of that choice aircraft fleet worldwide has been growing while it increase necessity of more maintenance and reliability organization on the earth. Maintenance and reliability in aviation play a vital role for safety and sustainability in flight operations. So it is as significant as aerospace technology.

As we are in an era in which there is a continuous progress in aerospace science and technology, we would like to invite researchers, scientists, engineers, practitioners, policy makers, and students to this international Symposium to exchange information, present new technologies, and developments, and discuss the future direction, strategies and priorities in the field of aerospace and MRO. ISATECH aims to handle a broad range of aerospace-related issues with particular emphasis on technological innovations and novel technologies.
