Citing the rise in Covid-19 cases in Europe, the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) is moving its annual Safety Summit from an in-person to a virtual forum on December 13 and 14, the association announced this morning. Registration for the virtual Safety Summit is free. Attendees who registered for the in-person event will automatically be signed up for the virtual Safety Summit and EBAA will reimburse ticket costs for the event.
European Union Aviation Safety Agency executive Patrick Ky is the opening keynote speaker for the two-day event, which will be held on the originally scheduled dates. With a focus on “Operational Excellence: daily actions to ensure safe operations,” the summit also will include sessions on business aviation safety, ground operations, and threat-line auditing.
“This continues to be a very challenging situation, and the health and well-being of our attendees and speakers remains our highest priority,” said EBAA COO Robert Baltus. “We decided that, in the current epidemiological situation, we had to take a proactive stance to showcase that safety remains our prime concern.”
