Business Aviation Safety Summit in Fort Lauderdale
The importance of data sharing, analysis, disaster recovery and the human factors involved in business aviation safety standards will be discussed and focussed upon this week as pilots and aviation professionals meet in Fort Lauderdale at the NBAA and Flight Safety Foundation’s Business Aviation Safety Summit.
Amongst the first speakers was G550 pilot, Steve Charbonneau, who announced the initial success of the voluntary aviation safety and information analysis sharing program (ASIAS) with 12 departmental members.
Mr John Cox, from Safety Operating Systems, a Washington aviation consultancy firm, talked about the fire risks of the use of lithium ion batteries onboard an aircraft and the sobering difficulties of extinguishing such a fire.
The two-day event, formerly known as the Corporate Aviation Safety Seminar, is industry recognised as the premier safety forum.
