VIDEO KEYNOTE SPEECH: NEW REGULATIONS - WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
Luc TYTGAT - Strategy and Safety Director,EASA

PREDICTIVE LANDING PERFORMANCE SYSTEM - RUNWAY OVERRUN AWARENESS AND ALERT SYSTEM (ROAAS)
Jason KIEFERT - Development Test Pilot, GULFSTREAM 

Tom LANDERS - Principal Engineer, GULFSTREAM

Following the EAPPRE recommendation to develop on board real time monitoring and alerting systems to assist in land/go around decision and braking management, ROAAS is meant as a major step forward for runway safety. Created by the industry, for the industry, it establishes a true baseline which future ROAAS manufacturers can use to ease the development and design. Is Gulfstream's ROAAS the safety net for the future?

TOP SAFETY CONCERNS FOR BUSINESS AVIATION

Johan GLANTZ - Senior Manager Safety and Regulatory Affairs, EBAA
Christopher MASON - Manager Policy & Technical (Safety & Security), European Regions Airline Association (ERA)

By the end of this session, EBAA, in cooperation with our members and drawing inspiration from partner industry bodies, aims to identify a set of priorities to further advance our commitment to business aviation safety. These concerns shall be data-driven and backed by thorough risk assessment processes, leading to an industry-wide pledge to streamlining our efforts towards the same goals.
Session 3:
SAFETY PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM-SIZED OPERATORS

Geert HULSHOF - Chief Risk Officer, Flying Group

From the selection, definition and application of Safety Performance Indicators (SPIs) and Targets (SPTs) to how ownership can be achieved by both management and staff, as well as a sample dashboard consisting of at least 25 suitable proactive and reactive SPIs and proposed SPTs for an aircraft operator and an FBO - this session has it all covered to help you elevate safety performance management beyond compliance.
Session 4:
NEXT SAFETY BATTLE IS GROUND HANDLING

Nuno AGHDASSI - Head of Flight Safety, NetJets
Terry YEOMANS- IS-BAH Programme Director, IBAC


Accidents related to ground handling constitute the fourth biggest accident category in the last ten years period. We will discuss ground incidents and ground damage, and how industry safety standards and SMS best practices can help avoid these types of events in the future.
Challenge yourself to come with new perspectives for your daily operations - think of what could go wrong and how likely that is to happen, how could that impact all the involved parties and how can you manage it, should it happen.
Session 5:
PILOT PEER ASSISTANCE

Gill GREEN - Clinical Psychologist, CAP

Brent PALMER - Director, Medical Instructors & Strategic Customer Relationships, MedAire
Rena ACHTEN - Coordinator and ICIFS Advanced Trainer for CISM, Stiftung Mayday

With this session, we aim to cater to our operator members, discussing a topic which seems to be starting to occupy their minds and priorities trying to assess how to respond to it: the EASA requirements for pilot peer assistance and the approaching compliance deadline (Aug 2020).

NETWORKING COCKTAIL 

PRESENTATION  OF THE SAFETY RECOGNITION AWARD 2019 

Annual Safety Summit - Day 2 Wednesday 13 November 2019

RUNWAY PERFORMANCE
Rob VAN EEKEREN - Director, Safe Runway GmbH

Giovanni CIMA - Senior Expert - Air Operations, EASA

EBAA has been successful in setting a legal European framework that allows 80%landing factor operations. That will reduce the need for operations to switch from CAT to NCC and opens over 30% more destinations. The beauty of th e new legal framework is that this is all on a voluntary basis and not mandatory.
10:00 - 10:30
OPERATIONAL LANDING DISTANCES
Frédéric LEBOEUF - President, Worldwide Falcon Operational Support, DASSAULT AVIATION


The session will describe how Dassault Aviation used the Operational Landing Distance (OLD) to land their Falcon demos aircraft in Saint Tropez La Mole Airport and how that is extended to their customer experience. Moreover, the presentation will offer some insight into best practices and recommendations learnt from experiences with short runways and at challenging airports. 
10:30 - 11:00

11:00 - 11:30
ENSURING SAFE, SECURE AND EFFICIENT DRONE OPERATIONS: THE EUROPEAN DRONE AND U-SPACE REGULATORY FRAMEWORK
Antonio MARCHETTO - RPAS Technologies Expert, EASA


Unmanned aircraft are a promising source of delivery of innovative services. Yet, these emerging technologies also present challenges: how to ensure that UAS operate safety within the existing air traffic environment, that adequate safety level for people on ground is preserved and that security and privacy are not compromised? The presentation will address these points providing main highlights on the recently adopted European regulation for operation of drones in the open and specific categories and update on upcoming tasks with regard tot the certified category of operation, UAM, C-UAS and U-space, highlighting the risk based and operation-centric approach at the base of the whole framework. The EASA draft Opinion on U-Space will be introduced and insight will be provided on the concept of U-Space as a set of new services relying on a high level of digitalization and automation of functions and specific procedures designed to support safe, efficient and secure access to airspace for large numbers of drones.
11:30 - 12:15
IS A PARADIGM SHIFT IN TRAINING FOR BUSINESS AVIATION PILOTS ACHIEVABLE?
Moderator:
Joel HENCKS - Managing Director, AeroEx
Panelists:

Frédéric LEBOEUF - President, Worldwide Falcon Operational Support, DASSAULT AVIATION
Daan DOUSI - Manager Aircrew & Medical Standards & Implementation Section, EASA
Denis KILGARIFF - Regional Director Training Operation, FlightSafety International

EASA proposes to modernize the leading system and update the learning objectives of professional pilots' syllabi. As technology evolves and demand grows for well-prepared pilots with strongly built core competencies, pilots need to be taught in a way that reflects real-life operational environments.
Training providers are continuously adding better training devices, while placing more emphasis on evidence-based training. But in an industry where a shortage of pilots is already an issue and with a wide variety of operators and aircraft types, does this pay off from a safety perspective?
12:15 - 12:30
