NTSB sets agenda for general aviation safety forum

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has released the final agenda including speaker names, affiliations, and biographies for the forum on General Aviation Safety: Climbing to the Next Level, scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, June 19 & 20. Representatives from government, industry and academia will serve as panelists during the forum and will discuss key safety topics including pilot training and performance, pilot access to and use of weather-related information, and aircraft design, certification, and maintenance.

Panelists will also share information about new technologies that may be beneficial in preventing future accidents.

In addition to the agenda announcement, the NTSB has released a promotional video highlighting the major issues to be discussed at the forum (click image at right to view video).

The forum, being held at the NTSB Conference Center and Board Room in Washington DC, is free and open to all; no registration is required.

The entire two-day event will be webcast live. An archive of the webcast will be available on the NTSB website for three months following the event.

Organizations and/or individuals can submit input for consideration as part of the forum's archived materials. Submissions should directly address one or more of the forum's eight topic areas (identified by the panel titles) and should be submitted electronically as an attached document to: gasafetyforum@ntsb.gov.
