13:00 - 14:45 Risk Management **Waitlist**

 Presented By  Pat Daily

Recommended for: All Aviation Professionals

Aviation is a risky business. The “normal” risks are bad enough: Weather, mechanical issues, fuel, high-elevation airports, mountainous terrain, and runway conditions. Now we have to worry about the Zika virus, terrorists, and drug-resistant STDs.  There are many ways to deal with all of those risks, but the worst possible way is to ignore them and hope that everything works out.  This workshop will arm you with tools to use to think about risk and to mitigate it to a level as low as reasonably possible. Come armed with examples and suggestions for what has worked for you in various situations.
