After a virtual-only edition last year, Bombardier’s Safety Standdown will be held November 2 and 3 at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita, the Canadian airframer announced this week. The theme of this year’s milestone event, which is marking its 25th year, is “Learn, Apply, Share.”
Aimed at pilots, maintenance technicians, managers, cabin crew, other aviation professionals, and students, the safety seminar features general sessions and workshops led by industry safety experts. Bombardier said some of this year’s presenters will be new to the seminar. Additional details about the seminar are forthcoming, the company said.
The last in-person Safety Standdown, held over three days in 2019 in Fort Worth, attracted more than 500 attendees and featured nearly 50 workshops on topics such as controlled flight into terrain, hypoxia awareness, international operations, and predictability of maintenance errors.
For most of a quarter of a century, the standdown has been held in Wichita. It started as a safety program for Learjet demonstration pilots.
