    SESSION 1: REGIONAL AVIATION SAFETY UPDATES

    PANEL DISCUSSION 1: SAFETY OUR JOINT RESPONSIBILITY

    Air travel is recognized as the safest mode of travel which is the result of an industry wide commitment to safety and through the introduction of new technology using a long established international framework of regulatory oversight and certification. Recent accidents however have raised doubts over our design and certification procedures, flight operations and training standards. In some corners, questions have been raised such as: is the safety oversight system broken? Have passengers lost confidence? However, the air transport industry is renowned for its resilience, comprehensive investigations, identifying and understanding the causal factors, learning the lessons that need to be learnt, the sharing of safety information, collaboration and taking the necessary actions needed to maintain the high level of safety performance we have come to expect.

    The Panel will look to discuss what the current situation is and how we may rebuild mutual trust and confidence in the overall integrity of the global system of regulatory oversight and certification. It will also discuss whether we need to revisit our safety management systems and safety culture especially now with the ever growing demand for the introduction of new technology that offers improved operational performance and efficiency.

    • Moderator: Martin Eran-Tasker, Technical Director, AAPA 

    PANEL DISCUSSION 2: THE ROLE OF INFRASTRUCTURE IN IMPROVING AVIATION SAFETY – SHOULD WE BE EMBRACING NEW TECHNOLOGY OR JUST GETTING THE BASICS RIGHT FIRST?

    By 2038, 6 of the world’s 10 busiest aviation markets will be in Asia-Pacific as an additional 2.8 billion passenger journeys per year will take place within the region compared to 2018. This rapid traffic growth is challenging, and will continue to challenge, the capabilities of the region’s diverse mix of States in terms of both safety and infrastructure management. There is real concern that in many parts of the region development of aviation infrastructure, particularly air traffic management (ATM) infrastructure and enablers like ATFM and A-CDM, is failing to keep pace with demand, where capability and capacity on the ground is failing to keep up with the capability and demand in the air.  To mitigate against growth induced negative safety and operational efficiency outcomes, we need regionally and globally harmonized, cross-border solutions for all facets of air traffic infrastructure and safety management. Across the region, a large amount of ATM related infrastructure expenditure has taken/is taking place. However, very little consideration appears to have been given as to whether such expenditure delivers appropriate or indeed any safety or operational benefits.

    Considering all of the above, this panel will examine the role of infrastructure in improving safety outcomes within Asia-Pacific. More specifically, should we be investing in/embracing new technology, or will better outcomes be generated by focusing on just getting the basics right first?

    • Moderator : Blair Cowles, Regional Director, Safety and Flight Operations, Asia-Pacific, IATA

    PANEL DISCUSSION 3: THE INNOVATION CHALLENGE

    The Asia Pacific region traffic is projected to double in size over the next 20 years and it will account for 40% of future aircraft deliveries. For more than a decade, we have experienced a continuous improvement in safety and operational performance built on a legacy of proven technologies. But if this is to continue and we are to respond to the challenges of growth, we must embrace innovation, new technologies and the potential safety benefits resulting from digitalization. New technologies, new transportation models, and new entrants are influencing the aviation industry at an incredible pace. As technologies evolve and become more complex, what adjustments are needed to be made to address these new developments to maintain safety. This session looks to provide insights on how innovation can assist organisations in managing safety and how they should balance the challenges of innovation with the need to maintain high standards of safety performance. It will discuss the role of the regulator and stakeholders on whether the regulatory approach is keeping pace or is there is a need for a new approach. It will discuss how can we better capture and use the data that new technology and innovation provides.

    WORKSHOP

     

     

    WORKSHOP 1: SAFETY RISK

    Bypassing bureaucracy and arming staff through effective risk management processes

    Programme Partner: 

    Capt. Andrew Mitchell / Singapore Airlines

    Alan Bradbury / Air New Zealand 

    The aviation industry has enthusiastically embraced Safety Management Systems as its core safety management framework. This has enabled industry stakeholders to communicate using a common language and align practices and expectations. However, a danger exists that these SMS managerial processes can become the main motivator for Regulators and Industry safety practitioners alike, as these processes are easily identified, audited and assessed. This could be at the expense of real world safety outcomes and is contrary to motivation for creating SMS. SMS was not created as a new and wonderful safety bureaucracy, but to coalesce well established safety practices to promote consistent safety outcomes from all operational personnel. These safety outcomes require appropriate tools and training, which the SMS aims to generate.

    To do this, industry needs to learn from significant safety events in a reactive safety management process. But this is not enough. In an industry of increasingly positive safety outcomes, we are now experiencing less significant safety events which we can learn from and an increasing number of safety events that are 'black swan' or unforeseen events. 

    This workshop will share and discuss best practices, and innovative ideas that airlines are using in their assessment of SMS safety data and development of effective risk management processess. But more importantly, this workshop looks to identidy new predictive ways that airlines are using to 'arm' their operational personnel against unforeseen events. The workshop will discuss ways on getting the most from your data, the need to integrate different safety teams and the requirement to expand the Safety Space beyond traditional boundaries. 

    WORKSHOP 2: TRAINING 

    TRAINING IS SAFETY - TRAINING IN AN EVER CHANGING AVIATION ENVIRONMENT 

    Programme Partner:

    Capt. Adrian Amaladoss / SFCPL 

     

    This workshop is not just about safety training. It is for participants to have their minds stimulated on the challenges, tools, nuances related to the relationship between training and safety. Upon completion of this workshop, attendees should take away key messages and concepts enabling them to adapt what they have learnt to their respective operations. In essence, training assists in helping consolidate knowledge and skills to establish reliable professional behaviour. What is essential is the transfer of knowledge into daily practice, to shape the behaviour of individuals and organisations and to implement and act on what has been learnt. More crucially, training is part of another process, part of the bigger picture of learning. As such, there is a lot more learning that we require - collectively to consolidate the knowledge, and individually to apply it in our daily work. 

     

     

     

     

    WORKSHOP 3

    CABIN SAFETY

    Programme Partner:

    Rosnina Abdullah / Malaysia Airlines

    Anara Nurpeissova / Air Astana

    Grace Tien / Hong Kong Express 

          

    The Cabin Safety Workshop 2020 addresses the Cabin Safety Management from a brand new perspective - Training Generation Alpha. Cabin safety is no longer just the focus on the Evacuation of an aircraft or Regulatory Compliance, the Cabin Safety Workshop adopts a more proactive and fundamental approach: The origin - The People and the Training. 

    Training: The workshop this year focuses on new challenges and methods of safety training delivery. It includes the extension of the training topics from the book to Virtual Reality. Topics under discussion will include Human Factors Analysis, Evidence Based Training, Resilience Engineering and Wildlife Trafficking Training. 

    People: The workshop also will focus on the Management of Cabin Crew Mental well-being, fatigue and the potential benefits of FRMS as well as the growing issue of onboard video recording by passengers. We also invite active discussions on the monitoring of safety equipment onboard and the potential of tampering with said equipment onboard. 

    Safety Implementation: Lastly, subject matter experts will share insights on SPI tools, SMS implementation, and ways to effectively monitor cabin crew safety compliance. We encourage sharing of difficulties in implementation and recommendations. 

    Interactive discussions, information and best practice sharing will be drawn from all of the above topics. 

    WORKSHOP 4

    TURBOPROP SAFETY

    Programme Partner:

    Bryant Chuang / Mandarin Airlines 

    Turboprops in the region are growing fast as they provide a valuable point-to-point connectivity in a competitive market. Turboprop safety is essential but efforts should not be limited to incident trend analysis. It requires a separate focus and attention to prioritise relevant safety initiatives due to the different operating environments and infrastructure challenges that turboprop aircraft experience in the region. 

    The APASS2020 Turboprop Safety Workshop addresses the safety challenges of the turboprop operations from different perspective. The session will focus on the turboprop operator's Safety Management System (SMS). Emphasis will be placed on safety performance indicators, safety communications, Line Operations Safety Audit (LOSA) and relevant edication and training. 

    The workshop session will explore turboprop' Flight data Monitoring (FDM) as well as sharing from subject matter experts on better management of FDM. Lastly, effective operations training including Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) and Evidence-Based Training (EBT) will be discussed. 

    This workshop will enable the turboprop industry to benchmark best practices from turboprop operators and to work together to continue enhancing regional turboprop safety. Our objective is for participants to benefit from the sessions and have a clearer vision of incorporating turboprop safety promotion into daily operations.
