Safety Standdown USA

The 14th Annual Safety Standdown USA will be held from October 4 to 7, 2010, in Wichita, KS, at the Hyatt Regency Wichita Hotel.

Offered by Bombardier in partnership with NBAA, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board, the 14th Annual Safety Standdown USA is a non-commercial effort to improve business aviation safety by combining skill-based training with knowledge-based training.

This seminar is offered free of charge and features subject-matter experts presenting on topics such as crew resource management, professional airmanship, advanced aerodynamics for business aviation and fatigue countermeasures. Safety Standdown is not aircraft- or manufacturer-specific, and the information presented is applicable to any aircraft flown. The foundation of the seminar curriculum is based on Dr. Tony Kern's Airmanship Model.

Why Do We Need This Training?

Human factors, while well understood, are rarely taught. Since eight out of 10 aircraft accidents are caused by human failure, not equipment failure, Safety Standdown provides critical information and training on topics directly related to human performance. Additionally, this seminar provides participants with tools to mitigate risk, improve flight department procedures and processes, and analyze their own performance and professionalism.
