Fatigue Risk Management Systems have been around for years and this year’s National Safety Forum will discuss new operational considerations and technologies to help with predictive and proactive approaches to managing fatigue. Mental health and other aeromedical issues can also significantly impede safety, and two sessions will cover those issues and the resources available to the business aviation community to address them. A fourth session will address the role organizations should play in this human performance optimization and how they should monitor and proactively engage this effort via their safety management system to safely realize maximum benefit. NBAA will also recognize excellence in the areas of safe flight and professionalism as part of the National Safety Forum. NBAA member companies achieving 50 or 60 years of accident-free flying will be recognized with NBAA’s Safe Flying Awards. Individuals who are the pillars of professionalism in the business aviation community will be recognized with the NBAA Dr. Tony Kern Professionalism in Aviation Awards.
