Babbitt, Hersman, Bolen To Open 13th Annual Bombardier Safety Standdown

Wichita Event Open To All Aviation Professionals

The 13th edition of Safety Standdown, Bombardier’s industry leading safety seminar, will return to Wichita, Kansas at the Hyatt Regency Wichita from September 28 to October 1. FAA administrator Randy Babbitt, NTSB chairman Deborah Hersman, and NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen will deliver opening remarks at this year’s fully booked event.

Under the new banner “Knowledge Ace”, the seminar offers three full days of lectures and one day of practical training workshops. New on this year’s agenda are: Smart Pilot workshop, TERPS/Runway Analysis workshop, and Mind and Body Wellness - a workshop examining cardiovascular risk factors among pilots and crew.

Randy Babbitt

“Safety Standdown is designed to challenge pilots and crew to expand their understanding of the human factors involved in aviation accidents. Knowledge Ace refers to the concept of using the acquired information to minimize the possibility of human error,” said Rick Rowe, chief pilot, Learjet. “Knowledge-based training integrated with skill-based training is our greatest defense against error, bridging the gap between what the industry gets and what it needs. It is the goal of Safety Standdown for our presenters, the subject matter experts, to share their varied knowledge with as many aviation professionals as we can reach worldwide.”

Deborah Hersman

Return presenters include industry and safety experts such as: Captain Gene Cernan, United States Navy (ret.); Commander Apollo 17, Dr. Mark Rosekind, President and Chief Scientist, Alertness Solutions; Dr. Tony Kern, CEO and Senior Partner, Convergent Performance; Sean Roberts, Director, National Test Pilot School; and John Nance, Author and ABC News Aerospace Analyst.

Ed Bolen

Safety Standdown and Safety Standdown Europe are organized annually in partnership with the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). The seminar is offered at no charge to all aviation professionals regardless of the type of aircraft they fly.

As of June 2009, over 3,500 pilots, crewmembers, safety specialists and industry officials had graduated from Safety Standdown.
