Risk Management 101


Location: Las Vegas Convention Center, Room N242

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.
10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

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.

Location: Las Vegas Convention Center, Room N232

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.

Presented by: David Labrozzi, GE Capital Solutions-Corporate Aircraft; Michael Dwyer, Guardian Jet LLC; Kenneth Dufour, Aviation Management Consulting, Inc.; and Anthony Kioussis, Asset Insight Inc.

Four business aviation experts will discuss the dramatic changes recent years have seen in aircraft values These changes have had far-reaching effects on the new and preowned aircraft sales, finance, and insurance industry segments. The panelists will examine the 3 primary drivers for these changes, which came into play almost simultaneously in a relatively short period of time:

• Economic – the “Crash” of 08, which dramatically drove down values in a matter of weeks; continued fuel cost increases;
• Technological – from new engines with better fuel specifics, to new avionics suites with improved communications and navigation capabilities rendering older equipment obsolete;
• Regulatory – from political emissions to noise to mandated new technology navigational equipment, new requirements require additional investments in previously inexpensive and popular airframes.

The panelists will discuss the impact of these changes to date, and what additional effects owners, operators, service providers and sales professional might expect over the near and far terms.

Business Aviation - Sustainability in a World of Change


Location: Las Vegas Convention Center, Room N232

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.
