1100 – 1230 Risk Management – LOC-i
ICAO has identified Loss of Control in flight (LOC-I) as one of the high-risk accident categories. Though these types of accidents account for a small portion of accidents in a year, they are generally fatal and account to high fatalities. With the aim to reduce the risk of LOC-I accidents, speakers of this session will discuss on topics such as contributing factors and procedures in LOCi Accidents Incidents, go around decision-making process and lesson learned from UPRT implementation

 1530 -1700 Lessons Learned from Accident and Incident Investigation
Advances in Aviation Safety have come as a consequence of factors, one of which is the ability to investigate and accurately identify the causation for accidents. The other factor is to integrate hazard identification risk assessment (HIRA) with the investigation process. This panel discusses the lessons learned from Aircraft Accident and incident investigations including the integration with the SMS HIRA process.

1030 – 1100 Morning Refreshment Break With Exhibitors
1100 – 1200 New Materials, New Repairs
New airplanes such as B787 and A350 are using fiber-reinforced polymer composite materials as primary structural materials. It takes time to develop maintenance, repair and overhaul the capabilities enhanced by advanced processes, automation, and digital technologies. Speakers share on the training needed for the next-generation workforce to support the repair of the new airplanes, next-generation aerospace manufacturing and new tech applications in composite repairs.

1200 – 1330 Lunch
1330 – 1500 Breakthroughs in Manufacturing
Additive manufacturing allows airlines to reduce inventory and alleviate supply chain constraints. As airlines begin to use additive manufacturing to better meet their businesses demands and reduce supply chain complexity, certifying an airplane part can be overwhelming given the lengthy processes. Speakers discuss the opportunities additive manufacturing bring to businesses as well as the certification processes.

 1500 – 1530  Afternoon Refreshment Break With Exhibitors
 1530 -1700 Change Management: MRO Trends
How do the new aircraft technologies impact MROs operations? For e.g. aircraft is more reliable and interval for hanger checks are extended as such more scheduled maintenance tasks are shifted to line maintenance, maximising layover time; troubleshooting processes are mostly automated thus engineers spend lesser time on each aircraft and are able to work on multiple aircraft types concurrently. The panel discusses the recent changes in MRO Operations. Can MROs find common best practices to gear up for these changes and ensure that the safety aspects are addressed?
