Plan on hearing industry recognized speakers presenting topics broadly related to the theme of Fighting Flight Complacency. The topics will be educational and relevant to this diverse audience. There will be plenty of opportunities to socialize from breakfast, breaks, luncheon and a hosted reception social hour. There will also be time for each registrant to learn how to fight an inflight cabin fire with educational and hands on training provided by Aircare FACTS Training.
