Asia 2013

Marriott Shanghai Hongqiao
Shanghai, China

Throughout Asia, especially in China, commercial, business and military aviation is heading into the most active and demand-driven region for public and private transportation. Unprecedented is the growth in opportunities for aviators to join the airlines or private business sector. This creates a need for highly skilled, adept and safety-minded professionals to be the very best.

Safety Standdown has a 17 year legacy as the leader in aviation safety training. As with the world class Bombardier standard for excellence in transportation, Safety Standdown offers aviators the absolute top of the line instruction by the worlds leading experts in aviation, holding posts in Government, Academic, Military, Commercial and Business aviation sectors.

We provide subject matter experts covering Human Factors, Professionalism, Fatigue, Safety Management Systems, Upset Recovery Techniques and much, much more.

In order for our global airspace to be the safest and most efficient, we need leaders to emerge who are willing to go above and beyond standard training. This is why we bring Safety Standdown to Asia. We want you to become part of that exclusive group of aviators who have surpassed expectations.

Safety Standdown has carefully begun it’s entry into Asia beginning in 2011, by creating a small seminar and later a specialized summit, to collaborate with aviation professionals in the region to provide an introduction of global safety aviation training. We have had featured speakers such as the honorable Xiong Jie and many others.
