The 2012 RAeS Annual International Flight Crew Training Conference will be held on 26 & 27 September at the Society’s Headquarters at No.4 Hamilton Place, London. It aims to examine the training paradigm and determine how it may best be changed to reflect the needs of today. Greater commonality worldwide in pilot, instructor and evaluator training and qualification standards and processes would enhance further the high levels of safety and quality within the air transport sector and also help reduce costs. The RAeS is already working in partnership with a number of key stakeholders, including IATA, ICAO, IFALPA, national authorities and safety organisations to further advance understanding of the principal issues and seek solutions.
The Conference is privileged to include a session dedicated to a very impressive line-up of the most senior members of the European Aviation Safety Agency – the Chairman of the Management Board, the Executive Director, the Rulemaking Director, the Head of Flight Operations, the Head of Flight Crew Licensing and the Head of Standardisation – who will provide a unique insight into the Agency now that it is solely responsible for regulating aviation in the EU.
In addition, the programme includes 20 other papers covering challenges, innovation, current initiatives and regulatory issues for flight crew training in a global environment, and it will address potential solutions. Some 150 delegates are expected, from over 20 nations, providing excellent networking opportunities during the breaks. The Conference will provide outstanding opportunities for training providers, training managers, airline operators and managers, instructors, examiners, manufacturers, regulators and researchers. It will conclude with an Open Forum when delegates can table proposals and discuss ideas for taking work forward. In sum, the Conference will provide a unique opportunity to become directly involved with the hugely important work to move the industry forward on these very significant issues.
