Bombardier’s 23rd annual Safety Standdown, one of the most comprehensive safety conferences in the aviation industry, is set for November 12-14 in Fort Worth, Texas. This year’s theme, “Elevate Your Standards,” prompts aviation professionals and organizations to establish new standards to put them on the path to a safer, more productive future.
“For two decades, Bombardier has led the industry in knowledge-based aviation training through this dynamic event and this year’s theme will most certainly prompt attendees to raise their games to develop a new standards paradigm,” said Andy Nureddin, Vice President, Customer Support, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
“In close to a quarter century of sponsoring Safety Standdown, our goal has been to foster a community of aviation professionals who are committed to lifelong learning and to disseminating higher standards of safety and professionalism throughout the industry.”
More than 450 aviation professionals are registered for this year’s event with hundreds more expected to participate online. As of 2018, more than 10,000 corporate, commercial and military aviation professionals have attended Safety Standdown seminars around the world.
Admission to Safety Standdown has, throughout the years, remained free to all aviation professionals as safety is a top commitment to the flying public. Next year’s event will be held in Wichita, Kansas.
About Safety Standdown
Originally conceived in 1996 as a human factors safety-training event for the Learjet flight demonstration team, the conference quickly garnered a reputation for excellence beyond Bombardier’s customer base. In 1999, in response to growing interest within the industry, Bombardier opened the seminar to all pilots.
In 2010, Safety Standdown expanded beyond the seminars into a year-round global human factors program offering online resources. Since 1996, more than 10,000 corporate, commercial and military aviation professionals have attended Safety Standdown seminars worldwide, live and through the webcast, including in Brazil, Canada, China, Mexico, Switzerland and the USA.
