2018 will be a critical year for Canadian aviation. Not since the mid-1980s and 90s has the Government of Canada focused so much attention on Canada’s commercial aviation system—how it performs, how it is structured, how its various parts mesh, and how it can be improved. Understanding the system and all its moving parts will be the key to new government policies that deliver results for airlines, for travellers, for communities, and for Canada.

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

On April 24, the Shaw Centre in Ottawa, will be the site of the National Airlines Council of Canada’s (NACC) second spring aviation conference: Flight Check 2018.

This conference will examine the role played by airlines, governments, airports and others in the safe and efficient movement of passengers, and some of the obstacles that stand in the way of the kind of air transportation Canada needs.

Through presentations, and interactive panels moderated by Dennis Trudeau, one of Canada's foremost broadcast journalists and interviewers, we will examine:

  • The complex passenger aviation ecosystem and the role of each player in getting travellers safely and efficiently to destination
  • Policies and regulations and how they intersect with day-to-day airline operations and the passenger experience
  • How public attitudes on air travel affect the public environment
  • Future trends in aviation


WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Flight Check 2018 will be of interest to anyone involved in:

  • Aviation operations
  • Aerospace
  • Air policy
  • Border Policy
  • Economic development
  • Tourism
  • Trade and immigration
