GWBAA Self-Improvement Agenda In D.C.
The Greater Washington Business Aviation Association (GWBAA), established to "represent the interests of business aviation in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia," has announced a March 8 "Safety Standdown" meeting at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Northern Virginia. The gathering includes presentations from Bob Agonstino, director of flight operations for Bombardier; former NTSB members Bob Francis and Greg Feith; Jim Burin of Flight Safety Foundation; Ben Winfree of Fatigue Training; Rob Rottman of DHS; and others. Topics will include aeronautical decision-making, human factors in aviation maintenance, cabin security and safety, fatigue management and security for business aviation operators. The GWBAA says space is limited and registration is necessary to secure a spot. The group recommends flight department managers, pilots, safety managers, schedulers/dispatchers, maintenance, flight attendant and security management professionals attend. The registration form is available online.
