Setting vision, mission and values, the foundation of a company and flight department along with leadership and actions, is simply the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Creating and sustaining them are two completely separate actions; if they are easy to create, they may be difficult to sustain.

This course will help in developing clear vision and mission statements and show you how living your values aids in implementing and supporting behaviors that boost safety, cohesiveness, process improvement, and adjusting to an environment that requires quick adaptations.

Because values are human-related, and people are needed to achieve the vision and satisfy the mission, we will focus on behaviors, motivators, empowerment and creating a culture that supports your vision, mission and values statements, and sustains the highest level of safety, ethical decision-making, and confidence.

This course fulfills NBAA PDP Objective L1.

Today’s workforce is all about instant gratification and “what’s in it for me” (WIIFM). Gone are the days of aviation professionals starting and ending their career in the same flight department.

SOPs for Fatigue Management in Aviation Maintenance


Location: Orange County Convention Center, Room S330 E/F (#3)

Education Track: Aircraft Maintenance & Facilities Operations

Presenter: Daniel Mollicone, Pulsar Informatics, Inc.

This Session is eligible for CAM application and recertification credit.

Fatigue management among aviation maintenance workers is critical to ensure that repairs and maintenance are performed in a safe and reliable manner. Long hours, night work and traveling across multiple time zones are common in maintenance operations. These fatigue stressors contribute to deficits in alertness, cognitive function, and judgement. This presentation will present standard operating procedures to mitigate fatigue in aviation maintenance. Such procedures include evaluating projected fatigue based on past and upcoming duty schedules and selecting appropriate countermeasures when fatigue limits are exceeded. Examples include limiting work hours at night, creating protected recovery periods after fatiguing shifts, assigning prophylactic napping, and strategic caffeine use.

Beyond Data: Making Life-Saving Decisions Through Knowledge


Location: Orange County Convention Center, Room S331 D (#5)

Education Track: Operations

Presenter: Chris Connor, Polaris Aero, LLC

Aviators often believe that more data equates with better decision-making, which is why regulators give operators more information (not better information) with which to make decisions. But this mistaken belief can be dangerous. That’s why it’s important for our operators and flight planners to understand the difference between data, information, and knowledge. Because being better prepared to assess potential threats and hazards can make a life-saving difference. Especially when it comes to risk assessments. This session will share case studies of how leading business aviation operations are gaining and sharing knowledge in order to make more informed, safer decisions. It also will discuss how data and information become knowledge, and how understanding their relationship to one another can help save lives.
1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Just Culture - Not as Simple as It Seems


Location: Orange County Convention Center, Room S330 G/H (#4)

Education Track: Operations

Presenter: Sunshine McCarthy, Baldwin Aviation Safety & Compliance, Inc.

This Session is eligible for CAM application and recertification credit.

A pilot flies into rapidly deteriorating weather conditions to return home. A maintenance technician works without personal protective equipment because he/she's under time restraints. A pilot fails to complete a mandatory flight risk analysis prior to take off. Human error, at risk behavior, or reckless behavior? It’s not clear in any of these examples. Why? We don’t have enough information. To truly create and live Just Culture, it’s essential for leaders to understand when an event is simply human error, unintentional at risk behavior, or intentional reckless behavior. You may find that reckless behavior very rarely is present. Your ability as a leader to overlook the outcome (no matter how undesirable) and focus only on the behavior is critical to applying Just Culture in the workplace.

Location: Orange County Convention Center, Room S330 G/H (#4)

Education Track: Operations

Presenter: Michael Dworkin, Michael L. Dworkin and Associates

This Session is eligible for CAM application and recertification credit.

Aviation is one of the most regulated industries in the world. While many FARs appear are specific and clear, many others are not. There are ambiguities, and even apparent conflicts between FAR provisions. There are also the "Stealth FARs"- the FAA's interpretations, internal orders, handbooks, notices and guidelines, as well as legal and administrative case precedents - which are not so easily found or widely known and which can change from time-to-time and without notice. In some instances, requests for clarification or interpretation can lead one down a perilous and precedent-setting path. Clarifications and interpretations oftentimes differ from FAA region to region, district office to district office, and inspector-to-inspector. This session will address the enforcement/investigative process and how airmen / operators can best prepare for and defend themselves in an enforcement situation.
