Session 5 – Safe integration of advanced air mobility (AAM)
The world of drones and autonomous operations is making progress.  Do we have the data we need to manage safety at levels that are better than traditional aviation?  Where is it going to come from?

Session 6 – Assuring aviation ushers in safe sustainability
You buy your airline ticket and the website mentions the carbon impact before you purchase your ticket.  As safety managers are we ready to implement sustainability enhancements safely? Do we even understand the risks?

Afternoon Networking Break

Session 8 – Landing safely and safely stopping on the runway
Approach and landing has long been noted as the most hazardous phase of flight and runway excursions are still the top accident category.  What will help the industry make real progress in this area?

Morning Business Break

Session 9 – Getting pilots prepared for the rigors of flying – What do we measure?
Traditional pilot training has taken a task-based approach while a competency- based approach looks at essential competencies.  Do we have consistency in what these essential competencies are and how to evaluate?


Session 10 – External threats to aviation safety
Despite the industry’s best efforts to improve aviation safety, there may be  outside attempts to disrupt operations or changes introduced to the environment that cause unsafe conditions.  What are they and how does the industry protect itself?

Afternoon Business Break

Session 11 – Providing a deeper understanding of safety data
Safety reporting and flight data monitoring are among the programs used to share a better understanding of risks.  What do they tell us and what are some other methods for analysis?
