About the Virtual Safety Summit 2020

EBAA’s Annual Safety Summit has established itself as Europe’s premier event where aviation professionals from across Europe and beyond discuss together

With the traditional event format having changed, EBAA will leverage different digital tools to host the event over the course of three days.
This year’s theme “Resilience – human and business” explores the topic of aviation safety when the concept of “business as usual” is overturned by an unprecedented event and how businesses have to adjust and find alternate ways to attain safety compliance. The COVID-19 crisis also brought to light the importance of having resilient people when overcoming hurdles in safety compliance.

EBAA wants to contribute to the development of an aviation safety culture that is proactive, not simply reactive, by answering the main question the industry has been thought these past months: How do we prepare for the unexpected?

Check-out the programme for more information on the topics!

Registration is already open, and participation is free for members and non-members.

Why to attend

EBAA wants to contribute to the development of an aviation safety culture that is proactive, not simply reactive, by answering the main question the industry has been thought these past months: How do we prepare for the unexpected?

This year’s Safety Summit will not only discuss the topic of “Resilience – Human and Business”, but is in itself an example of resilience, changing to a virtual format to reach our members.

Attendees will receive new perspectives and engage in discussions and debates on how to make business aviation safer and more resilient to the unexpected. Furthermore, those joining us will learn about and delve into the newest developments related to safety, in the areas of compliance and requirements.
