EASA to host second safety conference for general aviation

EASA is to host a second safety conference on general aviation later this year in Vienna, Austria.

The European safety agency will host the conference on November the 6th and 7th in the cultured European city. It is only the second time that EASA’s safety conference has focused on general aviation.

The agency stated: “EASA’s Annual Safety Conference for the 2nd time focuses on General Aviation (the first conference took place in 2014 in Rome) underlining the Agency’s continued commitment towards GA.

This year, the conference is taking place in Vienna coinciding with the country’s Presidency of the Council of the EU.

In the past years, EASA and the European GA community have relentlessly worked at making General Aviation regulation simpler, better, accessible and more straightforward.

Many waypoints of this action plan – the EASA GA Roadmap – have been achieved but we need to keep moving and take a positive view of the future that comes with many challenges.

We need to promote safety together, and we need to better cooperate at all levels in order to revitalise European GA and evolve and develop the sector to face the future in a positive spirit. We need a vision for GA!”

Registration for the conference is now open.
