    SESSION 1: REGIONAL AVIATION SAFETY UPDATES

    PANEL DISCUSSION 1: REGULATORY & INDUSTRY SAFETY CHALLENGES GOING FORWARD

    With the demand for air travel growing rapidly, airlines have already the responsibility of 3.8 billion passengers annually or more than 10 million passengers flying everyday safely and securely, of which approximately one third of those passenger are being carried by airlines from the Asia Pacific region. Understandably with this responsibility, safety is always our first priority. 

    In this regard, the air transport industry has been able demonstrate continuous improvement in safety performance. However, despite this well-established safety performance trend, a recent industry survey of people in the air transport sector finds that they remain pessimistic about the ability of the airlines to continue to improve safety.

    The panel will discuss the safety challenges going forward to assure a positive safety performance trend taking into account that the global fleet is expected double over the next 20 years; infrastructure, manpower and resources may be constrained; the need for effective regulatory oversight; the human factor challenge; and the role of technology and innovation.

    PANEL DISCUSSION 2: COMMUNICATION, INTERACTION AND ATTITUDE BETWEEN AVIATION PEER GROUPS 

    Accurate information regarding the status of the aircraft is essential for safe and efficient airline operations, yet there is evidence to suggest that pilots, flight attendants and maintenance engineers do not always communicate effectively with each other. The majority of this evidence tends to be anecdotal, and despite the notion that poor communication between these groups can potentially have undesirable consequences, there has been little discussion about how this might manifest within an airline environment either in terms of safety ramifications or schedule disruptions. The dynamic nature of commercial aviation now presents further challenges to effective communication such as removal of face-to-face briefings and On Time Performance. 

    The question might therefore be asked how well we, as an industry, are providing the whole team with the necessary skills to be able to communicate effectively together. This session will examine the factors influencing the intergroup relationships between professional airline groups, and also discuss measures to enhance problematic interactions should they be identified within an organisation.

    PANEL DISCUSSION 3: IMPROVING FLIGHT SAFETY AND OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY THROUGH INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY

    Aviation safety has been and remains the air transport industry’s highest priority. For more than a decade the air transport industry has been able demonstrate continuous improvement in safety performance. This performance is based on a legacy of innovation and the introduction of proven technologies enabling industry to address accidents and incidents involving a variety of threats and hazards that include hazardous weather, controlled flight into terrain, human-error, and mechanical or software malfunctions. With this approach the air transport industry is recognized as the safest mode of transport. However, in order to maintain and continue this high standard of safety performance the air transport industry looks to manufacturers and service providers for innovative solutions and technologies that will decrease pilot workload, improve flight safety and provide operational efficiencies.

    The panel will therefore discuss the innovations and technologies needed to build a safer aviation system; the information systems and tools needed for the assessment of situations and trends that indicate the potential for unsafe conditions; the near term technology that can decrease pilot workload and improve flight safety; the question “Can disruptive technology transform aviation safety?” and how may regulator involvement in future system certification change.

    Following on from the safety Performance Indicator workshop at APASS 2014, this workshop will centre on the management of data within the airline safety system. The specific focus will be the use of data to effectively measure the performance of the airline's Safety Management System (SMS). Emphasis will therefore be placed on safety indicators and the associated metrics relating to the effectiveness of the SMS itself. 

    To facilitate this, the workshop sessions will be structured around the four key areas of SMS: SMS Integration/Management, SMS Risk Management, SMS Assurance and SMS Training/Promotion. 

    Collaboratively, with our workshop members, we will explore the practicalities and challenges of measuring safety performance in an integrated SMS environment.

    The term "human factors" has grown increasing popular as the commercial aviation industry has realized that human error, rather than mechanical failure, underlies most aviation accidents and incidents. The significant and importance of human factors is ever so becoming more and more evident in most of our incident and accident cases.

    Human factors involves gathering information about human abilities, limitations, and other characteristics and applying it to tools, machines, systems, tasks, jobs, and environments to produce safe, comfortable and effective human use.

    In aviation, human factors are dedicated to better understanding how humans can most safely and efficiently be integrated with the technology. That understanding is then translated into design, training, policies, or procedures to help humans perform better.

    In this session, we aim to re-emphasize the importance of decision making, revisit HF/CRM guidance that has seen update by the Airworthiness Authorities and draft a HF/CRM training plan on decision making.

    Cabin safety is more than just giving a safety demonstration to passengers before each flight. It addresses issues such as fire hazards, risk management, fatigue, protection against turbulence, security, standard operating procedures and other measures to ensure the safety of passengers and cabin crew members.

    The work sessions will challenge and engage participants on cabin safety priorities. More importantly it will encourage active participation on key industry issues. Topics under discussion will include: Training on Human Tracfficking, Competency Based Training, Alcohol Management, Child Restraints, Safety and Inflight Comfort Products and Effective Safety Campaign.

    The workshop will also include interactive case study sessions enabling workshop attendees to work collaboratively through a series of group discussion exercises which will address the topics of Fatigue Risk Management for Cabin Crew and a Turbulence event scenario with Injuries to Passenger and Crew.
