Bombardier Aerospace will host its Safety Standdown Latin America on August 12 and 13 at the Grand Hyatt São Paulo Hotel in São Paulo, Brazil, immediately before the Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition. The theme of this year’s event is “Professionalism in Aviation.”

“Professionalism in operations is the key to maintaining our industry’s enviable safety record, and with the Latin American market continuing to grow, hosting this free-to-attend seminar just before LABACE provides us with the perfect opportunity to share the principles of Safety Standdown with a wide audience of industry professionals,” said Steve Ridolfi, president of Bombardier Business Aircraft. “With Safety Standdown seminars taking place all over the world, we’re confident that this essential knowledge-based training is reaching key growing markets for business aviation.”

Dr. Tony Kern of Convergent Performance, a highlight presenter, previewed his lecture, saying, “The largest untapped resource in the aviation world today is the difference between the levels at which we are currently operating and the levels we are capable of. The gap is not closed by meeting minimum regulatory requirements; it is closed through enhancing professionalism.”
