SBTA is an independent society of scientific research, which aims to promote academic research and technical development of air transportation in Brazil and Latin America. It was officially founded in December 2002 in São José dos Campos, SP, Brazil.

In 2023, XX SITRAER will be held in the city of Joinville, from October 18 to 20. Joinville is the largest city in the state of Santa Catarina in southern Brazil and is located in the center of a very industrial and well-developed area in the north and northeast of the state of Santa Catarina.
