Bombardier Safety Standdown Packs Them In
Bombardier’s four-day Safety Standdown seminar, held last month in Wichita, was fully booked. A new format was launched this year, featuring two days of workshops and two days of general sessions. New on the agenda at this 14th annual edition were workshops on aviation meteorology, human performance, advanced aerodynamics and aviation leaders/managers, the last-mentioned focusing on establishing benchmarks for professional ethics. Among the return presenters were Gene Cernan, U.S. Navy (ret.) and commander of Apollo 17; NTSB member Dr. Mark Rosekind; Dr. Tony Kern, CEO and senior partner at Convergent Performance; and Sean Roberts, director of the National Test Pilot School. The free event was held in partnership with NBAA, the European Business Aviation Association, the FAA and the NTSB.
