Flight Safety Symposium
13th - 14th September 2016 // Radisson Blu Edwardian, London Heathrow


Three Conferences in One - The Definitive Safety Event

Commercial Flight Safety     Safety in Air Traffic Control     Airline Engineering and Maintenance Safety     

Only the hottest issues within the industry will be covered, from SMS and ‘Just Cause’ to Safety II and the regulation issues, with focus being on the importance of the continued improvement in global aviation safety. You will be able to focus on the challenges and key issues affecting you and your business, as the sessions run simultaneously, and you are welcome to move between conference discussions freely.

In order to facilitate real discussions between panellists and delegates, we will be focusing the day on panel discussions, doing away with endless power points. Want to become part of the panel discussions or speaker line-up? Get in touch and let us know what you want to hear.

Of course everyone comes together for networking in the breaks and over lunch, so you can continue the conversation with colleagues and likeminded peers.
