Aviation safety professionals from the Asia
Pacific region will gather in Seoul, Korea for the Asia Pacific
Aviation Safety Seminar 2018 (APASS 2018) on 5-6 September.
The bi-annual event is being organised by the
Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) for the ninth time and
is once again expected to draw a large audience of safety experts
from government regulators & agencies, airlines, airframe
manufacturers and service providers.
APASS 2018 will provide an Asia Pacific
perspective on key aviation safety issues, including how the
region is responding to growth, and ways in which innovation and
new technologies can help to further improve flight safety and
deliver operational efficiency.
The seminar programme includes workshops
addressing specific safety topics such as measuring the
effectiveness of safety management systems, human factors, new
concepts in decision-making and cabin safety. These workshops aim
to allow participants to identify practical and innovative
solutions to safety threats and challenges.
