Reykjavík Flight Safety Symposium
The Icelandic Airline Pilots' Association organizes the annual Reykjavik Flight Safety Symposium. The seventh conference will be held on October 12th 2023 in Gullhamrar.
The goal of the conference is to share information and create a platform for discussion on the safety issues that concern the aviation industry. The conference attracts a diverse group from the aviation industry, from all over the world. Participation in recent years has exceeded our expectations and it is clear that the subject matter appeals to a diverse group of listeners, i.a. air traffic controllers, pilots and members of the administration.
The topics are varied in accordance with the spirit of the conference, but confirmed speakers are:
Petter Hörnfeldt - Mentour Pilot (TRE B737)
Sævar Birgisson from ISAVIA ANS - Remote towers
Snædís Sigurðardóttir, psychologist - Stress and burnout
Haukur Gunnarsson, Icelandair - flight training
The entrance fee will be modest as before and a lunch buffet will be included in the price.

A more detailed program will be announced later.

Throughout this period, we have made every effort to maintain a high level of service, despite understaffing and perceived unwillingness to negotiate on the part of the State.
