Asia Pacific Commerical Aviation Access Workshop
The Stanford Court Renaissance, San Francisco
August 2–3, 2010
Sponsored by U.S. Trade and Development Agency and Flight Safety Foundation
The U.S. Trade and Development Agency is sponsoring a workshop in cooperation with the Federal Aviation Administration for approximately 40 senior aviation officials from Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam at The Stanford Court Renaissance San Francisco on August 2 and 3, 2010. Representatives of U.S. firms are encouraged to attend the commercial perspectives portion of the workshop starting at 11:30 on August 3, 2010. Flight Safety Foundation also is a sponsor of this workshop.
The purpose of the workshop and reverse trade mission is to provide a comprehensive overview of the safety and security requirements needed for foreign air carriers to gain approval for direct commercial airline operations to the United States, including a review of the FAA’s International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA) program. This is an important topic for the growing number of airlines in the Asia Pacific region that seek to expand or initiate direct service to the United States.
The sessions on August 2 and the morning of August 3 will be reserved for government-to-government meetings led by the Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation and Transportation Security Administration and will not be open to the general public. The public session starts at 11:30 a.m. on August 3 will focus on Commercial Perspectives in Aviation Safety and Security and include panels on Aviation Security, Airport Safety and Air Traffic Management. U.S. companies are encouraged to participate to meet the officials and demonstrate their expertise in areas that might be needed by the attending delegations.
The cost for U.S. firms to attend the Commercial Perspectives portion of the Workshop on August 3 is $125 per person and includes lunch, the closing reception and workshop materials. To see the list of participating delegates, the workshop agenda and to register go to: www.trademeetings.com.
