Fondazione 8 ottobre at IASS 2016, Dubai

As a tradition, Fondazione 8 ottobre attended the International Air Safety Summit, which this year took place in Dubai on 14-17 November. Some of our TFT members were there, together with the Director, Capt.Arturo Radini.
During the three-day Conference, which the Flight Safety Foundation has been organizing since 1947, more than 350 delegates from all over the world took part and discussed about the most important topics of air transport safety, such as:

  • Safety in Information Protection
  • Human Factors
  • Training
  • UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems)
  • Risk Management
  • Go-around Compliance

The main sponsor was Emirates, UAE flag carrier. The Airline was a great guest who also offered us the chance of a very much appreciated guided visit to its headquarter.
Thanks to David Timmins (Emergency Planning Manager) we were able to assess the perfect organization which is activated as soon as a real emergency starts. The personnel is highly trained so that they can also deal with the families of those involved.

Although Fondazione 8 ottobre hasn’t beeen chosen to host IASS 2017 – it was the finalist together with Aer Lingus- we received a warm approval for the work and effort we’ve been showing throughout these years. The occasion was also absolutely important to strenghthen our connections with flight safety worldwide representatives.
