Bombardier has opened registration for the 2022 Safety Standdown, which will be held November 8-10 at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita. The Montreal-based airframer’s 26th standdown is free for pilots, maintenance technicians, managers, cabin crew, and other aviation professionals but seating is limited.

The three-day aviation safety conference’s theme this year is “Moving Safety Forward.”  This year’s session topics include runway excursion prevention, assessing safety in the hangar, creating a “sticky” culture and building followership, aviation stress and self-management, and making fitness for duty a standard practice.

Founded in 1996 as an aviation safety event for a Bombardier Learjet demonstration team in Wichita, the Safety Standdown was opened to other corporate pilots and flight crews in 1999. It has since expanded with an online component providing live webcasting of the event as well as other seminars and safety-related articles.
