On August 27, 2017, Nimbus Airlines Flight 13, slid off the end of the runway after landing at Houston Intercontinental Airport. At the time, the airport and the city, including first responders were coping with the aftermath of a tropical storm . . . . .

And so the story begins.

The 2018 edition of The Aviation Symposium, our 12th, is poised to be the biggest yet, bringing you a wide range of cutting-edge topics. As always, our unique, not to be imitated, moderated panel format, is focused on educating you, informing you, entertaining you and, most importantly, getting you thinking about how you can take back what you’ve learned and apply it to your operation.

Other highlights of the program include:

  • Keynote comments delivered by Robert Sumwalt, Chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board
  • First Responders: Fireman, EMTs, Airport Personnel, Police, MEs and others – Working with them Effectively
  • “No Comment”. . . . Techniques for Dealing with the Media and Keeping them at Bay!
