Bombardier’s annual Safety Standdown is turning 25. This year’s event is returning to Wichita next week—from November 2 to 3—at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Established 25 years ago by Bombardier’s Learjet flight demonstration team, the theme for this year’s event is “Learn, Apply, Share,” prompting aviation professionals and organizations to learn new skills, apply them, and share their knowledge to make an impact.
Presenters include Tony Kern, founding partner and the CEO of Convergent Performance; Amy Grubb, digital transformation advisor to the FBI CIO; Dan Boedigheimer, CEO of Advanced Aircrew Academy; Christopher Lutat, managing partner of Convergent Performance; and Captain Clarke “Otter” McNeace, v-p of flight operations and standards at Aviation Performance Solutions, who will explore Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I).
“For a quarter of a century, Bombardier has led the industry in providing aviation professionals with critical knowledge-based aviation training,” said Bombardier’s Andy Nureddin, who stewards the Safety Standdown program. “This invaluable event fosters a community of aviation professionals who are committed to lifelong learning and to disseminating higher standards of safety and professionalism throughout the industry.”
Bombardier has adopted a Covid-19 vaccine requirement for Safety Standdown 2021. All registrants must present proof of full vaccination to enter the venue and comply with CDC and state of Kansas recommendations on indoor masking for all event activities.
