Bombardier Safety Standdown 2018 Reaches Full Capacity

Webcast Of Safety Standdown’s General Session Available Online

Bombardier’s Safety Standdown conference, going on through Thursday at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Wichita, Kansas, has reached full capacity. Aviation professionals interested in attending the event can still participate by joining the webcast on the Safety Standdown website.

“Staying connected to Bombardier Safety Standdown’s network of professionals – whether through participation in person or via the webcast – will help refocus participants on safety in an ever more complex and fast paced aviation environment,” said Chris Lutat, author of Automation Airmanship and member of the Bombardier Safety Standdown Advisory Council.

Open to all aviation professionals, regardless of operator, Safety Standdown’s webcast will cover the general session as well as selected workshops, including on “Just Culture”, upset prevention and recovery aerodynamics, and bird/wildlife strikes. These workshops will feature knowledge-based aviation safety training, along with personal discipline and responsibility, as essential elements of aviation professionalism and safety.

“With this year’s theme – ‘Normalizing Excellence’ – workshops and seminars will highlight the importance of defining an elevated standard for aviation safety, with many of the speakers being aviation university professors and leaders,” said Andy Nureddin, Vice President Customer Support and Training, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Attendees will develop a profound understanding of current regulations, human factors, as well as take part in leadership workshops for maintenance personnel and pilots.”

This edition of Safety Standdown will also showcase 24 new workshops and 14 new presenters, including J.D. McHenry, president and CEO, Global Jet Services Inc. McHenry will discuss leadership skills required for higher safety standards and provide a workshop on leadership for pilots. Richard Williams, Training Manager and Rich Bean, Vice President of Global Jet Services Inc., will also host on-site workshops on Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA), a tool for profitability, success and sustained excellence leadership.

Returning speakers include Dr. Antonio Cortes, Associate Dean and Associate Professor of School of Graduate Studies, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Cortes will explore the importance of algorithms in his general session and discuss leading safety culture in his workshops. Pat Daily, President and Managing Partner, Convergent Performance LLC, will explain how to take the first step to improvement and professionalism.

Safety Standdown began in Wichita, KS in 1996 as an aviation safety training event for a Bombardier Learjet Flight Demonstration Team. The objective was to improve aviation safety standards and sustain positive changes within the industry. The event was such a success that it was later opened to other corporate pilots and flight crews in 1999.
