Bombardier’s four-day Safety Standdown seminar, which concluded today in Wichita, was fully booked. A new format was launched this year, featuring two days of workshops and two days of general sessions. New on the agenda at this 14th annual edition were workshops on aviation meteorology, human performance, advanced aerodynamics and aviation leaders/managers, the last-mentioned focusing on establishing benchmarks for professional ethics. “Safety Standdown promotes the philosophy of knowledge-based training and personal discipline,” said Learjet director of flight operations Puja Mahajan. “It is designed to initiate and sustain positive changes in behavior and cultural norms through the use of workshops and seminars given by subject-matter experts.” Among the return presenters were Gene Cernan, U.S. Navy (ret.) and commander of Apollo 17; NTSB member Dr. Mark Rosekind; Dr. Tony Kern, CEO and senior partner at Convergent Performance; and Sean Roberts, director of the National Test Pilot School. The free event was held in partnership with NBAA, the European Business Aviation Association, the FAA and the NTSB.
