Communicating for Safety 2012: What's on the Agenda?
Thursday, January 05, 2012
Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood has been added to the repertoire of distinguished speakers and panelists making up the agenda for Communicating for Safety 2012.
Discussions will focus on a wide variety of safety issues, from how to effectively report potential issues and errors, how to remain calm in the worst of weather conditions and how to avoid potential collisions on the runway. Other seminars will cover topics such as how recent and upcoming changes in air traffic control technology will impact flight safety and the jobs that NATCA members do every day.
The American aviation system is the safest in the world, and 2011 was an exceptionally safe year for both small and commercial planes across the nation. CFS will serve as a celebration of NATCA members’ great successes over the past year, and a chance to see where air traffic control can improve and adapt to changing technologies going forward.
CFS will be held Monday, Jan. 30 through Wednesday, Feb. 1 in the heart of midtown Atlanta at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, an iconic building that is the second tallest all-hotel skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere. It is located just blocks from Centennial Olympic Park, the World of Coca-Cola and the Georgia Aquarium, and will serve as a great backdrop for what will certainly be a memorable and educational week of aviation safety discussions.
