What’s Best in Aviation Training?

Aviation training must advance to match the new demands of commercial operations. 

The challenge is to blend lessons learnt with the use of the best of new technology and techniques. 

The Asian Aviation Education & Training Symposium (AAETS) 2019, taking place in Seoul on 25-26 June 2019, will focus on an in-depth coverage of two major industry training disciplines in order to identify current best practice:

• Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL)
• Maintenance Training

Presentations proposals are invited to cover:

Multi-Crew Pilot Licence
– Current and future regulation
– Practical syllabi – lessons learnt and improvements
– Preferred training equipment/platforms
– Seamless introduction of graduates into airline operation
– Actual measured online performance of graduates
– Rate of progress to Command
– What is the ROI?

Maintenance Training
– Human factors
– SMS in maintenance training
– Non technical topics for maintenance training

Presentations on other relevant subjects within these disciplines will also be considered.

Each session in the conference will be followed by a workshop discussion on that session’s topics, so presentations should be designed as a lead-in to the subsequent workshop and be 15 minutes maximum in length. If using a slide-based presentation, these should be limited to a maximum of 20 slides. 

To propose a presentation for either of the AAETS conference streams, please send a maximum 300 word abstract.

Submissions should include:

• The working title of the presentation
• Your full job title and email address
• Up to 300 word abstract
• A short biography of the speaker and conference presentation experience

Please title your email “AAETS 2019 ABSTRACT” and submit to Chris Long, Conference Chair, at Copy should also be sent to Fiona Greenyer at Authors of accepted speaker proposals will be notified by mid-November.

AAETS is an “Applied” conference and while full academic papers are not appropriate, we will consider summaries of appropriate aviation training and education research projects.

Preference will be given to air carriers and training organisations with real world training insights, “Lessons Learned” and training “solutions and outcomes” information. In no case will sales presentations be accepted. 

We sincerely thank all those who propose presentations and will endeavour to respond to all submissions.
