Safety Standdown promotes knowledge-based training along with personal discipline and responsibility as essential elements of aviation professionalism and safety. Safety Standdown is a global, year round program. Bombardier began and continues to sponsor the Standdown, directing this effort to the entire aviation community, regardless of the specific aircraft you operate or help maintain. Learn more about our history here.
These seminars – free and open to all pilots, crewmembers, maintenance technicians and managers on a first-come, first-served basis – are not aircraft – or manufacturer-specific. They are not marketing events – there is nothing to buy. And the only thing being sold is a sincere effort to initiate and sustain positive changes in individual safety behavior and increased professionalism in creating an aviation safety culture.
Safety Standdown relies exclusively on subject-matter experts presenting both timeless and timely information on a wide range of professional topics relating human performance to aviation safety. Our carefully selected presenters, such as Dr. Tony Kern, expert in human factors, or Dr. Mark Rosekind, Member NTSB, Fatigue expert, help to change the way you think about safety. Expect to come away from a Safety Standdown with effective new tools to reduce safety risks, improve procedures and processes and deliver explicit methods for improving personal situational awareness and judgment. This focus on the human factor in safety serves as a vital, indispensable and previously underemphasized complement to traditional skills-based training.
