The Asia Pacific Aviation Training Symposium will return for its first in-person event this year after three years of running virtual conference during the Covid pandemic.
The event will take place in Singapore at the Marina Bay Sands hotel and resort on August 29-30.
The conference will cover three different themed streams in which more than 50 firms are due to update delegates on latest developments in the sector.
There will also be keynote addresses that will give an overview of the aviation sector in Asia Pacific and the solutions needed to address its challenges.
A pilot stream will focus on CBTA/EBT developments, implementation challenges and solutions and recruitment and training, with global experts delivering insights and answer delegates’ questions.
Technology will also be a focus and expert panels will discuss the implications of virtual reality and Artificial Intelligence on working lives.
In the cabin crew stream the sessions and interactive workshops will focus on learning and new insights. CBTA will also be discussed, as a methodology which is now entering the world of cabin crew training.
The maintenance stream will tackle key issues such as the pipeline for new mechanics and the development of new instructors which are expected to be key issues in coming years.
In all streams, the issue of mental health will be tackled. The event will hear from different experts about how to embrace an issue which is certainly one of the most important topics at the moment.
Organisers of the event said: “The last three years have seen huge developments in technologies, innovation and learning methods.
We have learned from our WATS and EATS conferences that our industry is eager to understand, learn and implement the latest thinking to get things done and face current challenges head on. I am sure the Asia-Pacific region is in the same state of mind.”
