While NBAA has set aside this year’s NBAA-BACE, the organization is moving forward with its popular safety programs traditionally held in tandem with the annual convention but in a repackaged, virtual format. To be held October 5 to 9, the same week that the NBAA-BACE was originally scheduled, Virtual Safety Week will feature an online single-pilot safety standdown and a national safety forum.
Each program will offer sessions in short time blocks through the week, NBAA said, providing insight into best practices, critical thinking skills during a crisis, and personal performance and fitness for duty optimization.
The single-pilot safety standdown will encompass four sessions, including a keynote, on October 5 and 6—“The Quest for Mastery,” “Ambiguous Cockpit Indications,” “Excellence on Approach,” and “Options for Success & Keynote: Lessons Learned from a Single-Pilot Accident.”
The national safety forum, meanwhile, will involve sessions on October 8 and 9 covering “Optimizing Your Personal Performance” in the areas of sleep, body, mind, and a supportive organizational and SMS structure.
The programs will cover insight from a range of experts from across the industry. Linking the programs on October 7 will be the 2020 Dr. Tony Kern Professionalism in Aviation Awards. Now open, registration for the programs is free.
