Goal is To Improve General Aviation Search And Rescue
Ric Peri, vice president of government and industry affairs for the Aircraft Electronics Association, will participate in a forum sponsored by the National Transportation Safety Board focused on general aviation search and rescue operations. Peri is scheduled to appear on Tuesday, July 17, from 1530-1700 EDT in the NTSB Board Room and Conference Center in Washington, D.C.
Peri will join individuals representing government and industry on the panel to discuss key safety topics, including the regulations, policies and procedures that affect search and rescue at a federal level.
When there is a general aviation plane crash in the U.S., inland searches for the aircraft are conducted by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and supported by numerous federal, state, local and volunteer organizations.
Forum panelists will share information about emerging technologies and how they can shape and improve general aviation search and rescue missions. The forum will include a dialog between search organizations, technology manufacturers and industry groups on the issues currently impacting the general aviation and search and rescue communities.
The free two-day forum is scheduled July 17-18 and is chaired by NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman. All five board members will participate.
