EBACE Safety Workshop

The EBACE Safety Workshop, developed primarily for professionals in the business aviation community in Europe, is an effort to provide critical information and training that is directly related to human performance.

Monday, May 19, 2014 – 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m
Geneva Palexpo, Congress Centre, Room K

Eight out of ten accidents are caused by human failure, not equipment failure. Workshop sessions will be presented by subject matter experts and will provide insight, knowledge, critical information and training directly related to human performance. The EBACE Safety Workshop is neither aircraft nor manufacturer specific, and will include information that is applicable to any aircraft flown. The Safety Workshop will challenge you to change the way you think about safety.
