Risk Management 101

Education Track: Aviation Management and Aircraft Ownership

Moderated by: Tim McSwain, Allianz

Presented by: John Averill, Insurance Office of America; Christa Hinckley, Dentons US; and James Murray, Delta Private Jets

This Session is eligible for CAM application and recertification credit.

What does taking a shower have in common with operating aircraft? Simple - it requires decisions about risk! Don’t believe it? Consider this common situation: it is 4:00 a.m.; you stumble to the bathroom, fumble for the light, reach into the stall and turn the water valves on. After a moment, you test the water temperature and discover it is two degrees cooler than steam, so:

 a. you avoid getting burned by deciding not to shower today, or
 b. you mitigate the risk by reducing the temperature, or
 c. you may decide to let someone else shower first (!), and see if they get burned, or
 d. you decide that you will get in the shower anyway, accepting the risk of getting burned.

All of the elements of handling a known risk are present in this example and you did them without thinking very much about risk or the handling of it. There are four such elements: 1) Avoidance; 2) Mitigation; 3) Transfer; and 4) Retention. Each of these elements is an integral part of dealing with any risk. This panel will walk though what each element of risk means and apply them to the real world of aviation operations.

Today’s business aviation market is driven by factors that range from macro influences like the state of the economy and the health and strategies of manufacturers to micro factors that are more specific to a transaction like brand loyalty, product mix and capability, and company specific operating structures. In between, the market is influenced by industry factors like uncertainty in residual values, evolution of financing products, changes in the regulatory and tax environments and the expected life cycle of current business aircraft models.  Join this panel of industry leaders in an interactive discussion of these and other factors, from the big picture to the deal specific, and learn about how these factors can create value opportunities in the market or how they can hinder the market’s recovery.  Bring your questions, your ideas, and your views to help us stimulate a lively discussion.

Education Track: Safety and Risk Management

Presented by: Paul Lange, Law Offices of Paul A. Lange, LLC and Sydney Macca, Law Offices of Paul A. Lange, LLC

The immediate aftermath of an accident is no time to start thinking about all the pitfalls associated with completing the lengthy and detailed NTSB Form 6120.1, which is due 10 days following an accident. It asks such seemingly innocuous questions as who is the operator? In a time of pilot and mechanic agency agreements, numerous RVSM authorizations, and a variety of other operational control issues, are you 100% certain that all the documentation for every flight matches so that it is clear whom is the operator? Attendees will gain the knowledge and skills to insure that they can complete the 6120.1 form without creating additional regulatory, tort and insurance coverage problems for themselves at a critical time.

Fleet Issue Collaboration; Improving Safety, Operating Cost And Reliability Through The Sharing Of Aircraft Operational Data

Education Track: Maintenance and Technical Issues

Presented by: Grant Johnson, Airframe Resolution LLC; Jeff Shutrump, Airframe Resolution LLC; and John Peters, Airframe Resolution LLC

Automation Airmanship for the 21st Century

Education Track: Safety and Risk Management

Presented by: Chris Lutat, Convergent Performance

For over two decades the aviation industry has seen the acceleration in the replacement of legacy, "round dial" aircraft – large and small, civil and military, fixed and rotary wing — with a new generation of aircraft built around digital technology. In recent years, the pace has accelerated dramatically, yet the human component of this safety-centered system has lagged advances in hardware and software. Captain Chris Lutat will discuss his experience in helping organizations of all sizes adapt and adjust to the challenge of adopting highly automated aircraft, while offering a unique perspective on the hurdles associated with adopting new technology, and valuable insights on improving the integration between the human operator and the information-rich environment of advanced aircraft. The presentation will include discussions of the importance of crew member and equipment readiness.

What's On Your Runway?

Education Track: Safety and Risk Management

Presented by: David Siewert, FAA and Jim Krieger, FAA

Recognizing that airport construction introduces additional risk to air traffic operations, the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Air Traffic Organization (ATO) created the Airport Construction Advisory Council (ACAC) in April 2010. The ACAC was tasked with ensuring safety during airport construction activities. The ACAC consists of FAA and U.S. aviation industry professionals with diverse backgrounds and experience. It has grown to 15 core and associate members strategically positioned across the United States. Its theme is "managers working with managers," a concept that establishes credibility and facilitates a positive response at U.S. air traffic facilities and airport offices. This presentation will detail the role of the ACAC and how it provides timely notices to stakeholders regarding construction activity at airports throughout the United States. Presenters each were founders of the ACAC.

Business Aviation - Sustainability in a World of Change

Education Track: Industry Update

Presented by: Dan Brown, Honeywell; Kurt Edwards, International Business Aviation Council; and Charles Etter, Gulfstream

This Session is eligible for CAM application and recertification credit.

Within the context of the global industry and ICAO goal of carbon neutral growth from 2020, market-based measures (MBMs) are only one component of several meant to reduce international aviation carbon emissions; others include new technologies, operational improvements, and infrastructure modernization. Sustainable alternative fuels hold the greatest promise for reducing aviation carbon emissions. Likewise, new aircraft and design technologies can lead to important efficiencies. To the degree they are applied, MBMs and other policies implemented by States should incentivize the development and use of sustainable alternative fuels and new technologies, and MBMs should give credit for the use of alternative fuels. The sooner alternative fuels and new technologies are available and used in quantity, the sooner carbon emissions decline and the need for MBMs is eliminated.

Despite the fact that people are at the heart of an organization, many departments no longer have the internal resources to provide the necessary coaching and development that prepare people for leadership roles.

What does it take to engage, inspire and motivate others? Who are the role models in business aviation? And why are we in such uncharted territory? Learn from the Business Aviation Leadership expert Jim Lara of Gray Stone Advisors as he shares real-world insights for both up-and-coming leaders and existing leaders who need to brush up on their skills.
