CBAA 2017 features top educational opportunities

Offering a wealth of new educational and networking opportunities, CBAA 2017 promises to leave delegates richer in knowledge, with stronger relationships and armed with critical tools that will help them propel their business forward.

Program highlights include two important panel discussions: The first is an update from Transport Canada’ director general, Civil Aviation, Denis Guindon and NAV CANADA’s EVP, Service Delivery, Rudy Kellar. The second is an open panel discussion, Working with Airports. Craig Richmond, president and CEO of Vancouver Airport Authority is only one of senior airport executives participating this important discussion.

A number of sessions are aimed at improving operations. They include an introduction and workshop on CBAA’s SMS and RMS, answering questions on operational and regulatory hot topics, and providing guidance on how to deal with operational issues such as unruly passengers, unconventional risk and expectation bias.

Other sessions will add to delegates’ knowledge base and keep them one step ahead of the competition: how to use technology to increase efficiency, what ADS-B/NextGen means for Canadian operations, and how to use data to manage costs.

CBAA has also launched new certified Professional Development Program (PDP) courses at CBAA 2017: a Quality Systems Auditor Workshop for 604 operations and a course on Strategic Leadership in Business Aviation that counts towards NBAA CAM certification. Available to member delegates for only $200 each, these CBAA-endorsed courses point to a future of new professional development opportunities created or customized for Canadian business aviation employees and managers.

Networking also reaches new heights in our exhibit space and static, which we have opened to delegates attending the Aerospace Defense and Security Expo (ADSE), for a combined – and unprecedented – total of about 1,000 delegates and 100 booths. Adding to that, we are offering a new B2B meeting scheduling app at no charge to delegates and exhibitors.

Finally, the CBAA Chalet at the Abbotsford Airshow Twilight Show will end the convention with a bang – featuring fireworks and one of the best aerial performances in North America!
