Bombardier today announced that it set November 8 to 10 as the dates for its 25th annual Safety Standdown, which is free to attend but has limited seating and requires registration. It will be held this year at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita, though Bombardier will once again live-stream certain sessions for remote viewing by those unable to attend in person.
This year’s theme for the aviation safety conference is “Moving Safety Forward,” which Bombardier explained, “sounds like a straightforward concept, but is not easy.” The company added, “It takes the utmost commitment of everyone in our industry to instill a sense of change, moving forward and improving at everything we do. It also starts with culture change, starting every mission with a sound safety premise... Safety needs to be the overriding driver of every decision we make—nothing else will prevent unnecessary risks. We all must keep moving, pressing forward to ensure we meet this necessary goal. This is a journey without a final destination, but our future depends on it.”
Bombardier has not yet released an agenda for the conference, but it historically has included a range of timely aviation safety topics and well-respected expert presenters. Registration is not yet open, but those who wish to attend can make hotel reservations via the conference webpage.
