Security promises to be top of the agenda at the 2014 Regional Aviation Association of Australia national convention.
Speakers at the conference will include Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin, Chief of the Defence Force, as well as David Forsyth, chair of the Aviation Safety Regulatory Review.
The three-day event also features a presentation from Australian Maritime Safety Authority rescue coordination chief Craig Condon on the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
And international affairs commentator Keith Suter will explain why flying was the safest way to travel.
“The RAAA is the only organisation representing all sectors associated with regional and general aviation across Australia,” RAAA chief executive Paul Tyrell said in a statement.
“The national convention plays a significant role in providing a collective voice representing the members of the aviation industry.”
Australian Aviation is a silver sponsor of the event, to be held at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley between October 8-10.
