71st annual International Air Safety Summit
Thank you to our 2018 Host Sponsor – The Boeing Company
“I am delighted the Flight Safety Foundation has selected Seattle as the venue for this year’s International Air Safety Summit. The foundation has been a key partner of ours in identifying and helping implement safety changes that make our industry the safest form of transportation,” said John Hamilton, Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of Engineering and chairman of the Flight Safety Foundation Board of Governors. “Passengers expect to arrive safely at their destination and the foundation plays a key role in making sure this happens. Additionally, the rise of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is gradually becoming part of everyday life—with this technology and innovation comes additional risks that our industry must mitigate. Boeing looks forward to hosting the summit and welcoming the delegates to share best practices and key learnings to ensure our safe aviation system becomes even safer.”
