Three-Day Meeting On Professionalism At All Levels,
The NTSB will hold a safety forum on professionalism in
aviation beginning Tuesday, May 18, 2010. The three-day,
forum will be chaired by NTSB Chairman Deborah A.P.
"NTSB's investigations into the midair collision over the Hudson
River last August, the crash of Colgan Air flight 3407 in February
2009, and the October 2009 Northwest pilots' overflight of their
intended airport provided the impetus for this forum because all of
them clearly demonstrated the hazards to aviation safety when
pilots and air traffic controllers depart from standard operating
procedures and established best practices," Hersman said.
"During the forum, we will gather information on the screening,
selection and training of pilots and controllers and methods to
reinforce professionalism and excellence."
The forum is not limited to looking at just pilots. Panelists
participating in the forum will represent industry, government
agencies, labor, academia, and professional associations. A
technical panel composed of NTSB staff from the Offices of Aviation
Safety and Research and Engineering, and the NTSB Board Members,
who will make up the Board of Inquiry, will question the
Dr. Tony Kern, an internationally recognized human factors and
pilot performance expert, is the forum's keynote speaker. The
names of the participating panelists and the agenda will be
provided in early May.
The forum, titled "Professionalism in Aviation: Ensuring Excellence
in Pilot and Air Traffic Controller Performance," will be held at
the NTSB's headquarters in Washington, DC. The public can
view the forum in person or by webcast on the NTSB web site.
