Presented by: NBAA's Safety Committee
Over the past several years, aviation has seen a number of accidents where pilot training and pilot performance have been identified as either a probable or contributing cause. Recent high-profile accidents have revealed possible weaknesses in the aviation system trains pilots and what they learn during recurrent training opportunities.
In order to remain ahead of these disturbing safety trends, NBAA's Safety Committee will host a one-day Business Aviation Pilot Training Symposium to focus on improving the value proposition for training. Adapting training philosophies from other segments of the industry, such as the Advanced Qualification Program (AQP), for business aviation could yield substantial improvements in pilot training.
The symposium will focus on work already completed by NBAA's Safety Committee along with the plan for tools and guidelines to assist the business aviation community in advancing their own training programs.
The program will be moderated by:
- Steve Charbonneau, NBAA Safety Committee Secretary, Altria Client Services
- Richard Walsh, NBAA Safety Committee Chairman, Hewlett-Packard
Both NBAA Members and non-Members are welcome to attend this event free of charge. Please note that no meals will be provided for this free event. To register, contact NBAA's Doug Carr at [email protected].
