The theme for this year is Working Together for an Innovative and Sustainable Global Aviation Community and will be hosted by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. Taking part in Seoul, Republic of Korea, the Symposium will be composed of interactive panels focussing on the theme of the Symposium and include discussions on how ICAO supports Member States in the implementation of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPS), and Global, Regional and National Aviation Plans, through innovative implementation support and training activities.
The aim of the event is to highlight the organization’s latest digital tools, key initiatives, and collaborative endeavours to support aviation resilience, innovation, sustainable development and operational solutions.
Joining one of the panel discussions on 31 May, will be our Head of Training, Silke Buckley, focusing on “The Future of Civil Aviation Training in a Digital World”.
CAAi and Aspeq are exhibiting together throughout the event, allowing visitors to meet the team, discuss your State’s regulatory challenges and regulatory eTools (eExams and eLicensing) alongside training requirements and opportunities to optimise your aviation system.
Matthew Margesson, Head of International Operations at CAAi will be joining Silke at the symposium.
