NBAA's Doug Carr to Promote Safety at European Aviation Event

Oct. 27, 2014

Doug Carr, NBAA's vice president of regulatory and international affairs, will discuss current trends in business aviation safety during the upcoming Central Europe Private Aviation Convention (CEPA EXPO 2014). This year's meeting, titled "Business Growth Through Aviation," is slated for Nov. 19 and 20 in Prague, Czech Republic.

"We appreciate the opportunity to attend international regional events like CEPA EXPO 2014," said Carr. "This type of event provides a great venue to share with attendees the latest developments in business aviation safety."

Carr will present several tools for business aircraft operators, including the recently published Flight Safety Foundation Duty/Rest Guidelines for Business Aviation and the new NBAA Training Management Systems tool. NBAA partnered with the Flight Safety Foundation to update the Duty/Rest Guidelines for Business Aviation in an effort to address the 24-hour-a-day needs of business aviation while considering current research in fatigue science and human physiology. Implementing concepts set forth in the guidelines document can help flight departments meet the needs of their customers while mitigating the risk of fatigue.

The NBAA Training Management Systems tool uses data from business aircraft operators to tailor training events to meet current trends.

"The concepts presented in the Flight Safety FoundationDuty/Rest Guidelines for Business Aviation and the NBAA Training Management Systems tool are universally applicable to all business aircraft operators," said Carr. "CEPA EXPO attendees will learn how to implement these ideas in their own flight departments." Download the Duty/Rest Guidelines for Business Aviation.

Carr will also share tips for developing a positive safety culture within flight departments, including guidance on how including culture in an organization's goals can help leaders foster a positive safety culture.
