Bombardier Safety Standdown 2014 To Focus on Cockpit Distractions

 - April 24, 2014, 2:10 PM

Bombardier’s Safety Standdown program this year will focus on “attention control,” more commonly known as cockpit distractions. “Distraction is an increasingly significant risk to aviation safety that permeates every aspect of aircraft operation,” event organizers said. Safety Standdown and its network of experts will address this issue at the seminars in São Paulo, Brazil, on August 11 and in Wichita from October 6 to 9, as well as online. There is no charge to attend Safety Standdown seminars, but seating is limited and people who want to attend must register in advance.
