This year’s Flight Safety Symposium takes place on 26-27 September at the Park Inn Heathrow, London. Orgnaised by FlightGlobal, in partnership with ATCA and IATA, the symposium showcases the importance of continued improvement in global aviation safety.
Delegates will hear about the latest regulation developments, receive advice on safety issues and discover best practice steps towards reducing the chance of accidents. The event covers three main areas: commercial flight safety; airline engineering and maintenance safety; and air traffic control.
The key focuses within the Air Traffic Control stream will be getting to grips with the ever growing threat of cyber-attacks and looking at the impact of fatigue and stress on controllers, whilst answering the question 'How much regulation is being placed on large UAV and how will changes to global reulgation affect them?'.
Confirmed speakers in this stream so far include Neil May, head of human factors at NATS, Alfred Vlasek, head of safety and occurance investigation at Austro Control and Peter Dumont, President and CEO, Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA).
