2013 Safety Standdown Montreal a Success!

Our own Bombardier professionals were invited to experience the excitement, energy and inspiration of Bombardier’s premier aviation safety training. The Safety Standdown seminar was offered exclusively to Bombardier management and pilots, and featured some of the same Subject Matter Experts that present at Safety Standdown held throughout the world.

A wide variety of presentations and workshops were offered and are relevant to all aviation professionals, whether you are a pilot, office manager or operational personnel.

Morning sessions were presented in English with simultaneous translation in French. Afternoon workshops were presented in English only, with facilitators available for translation if required.

We were glad to share the program with all of our teams, and hope to see this culture shared among all at Bombardier!

Safety Standdown Ambassador Program

The Bombardier Safety Standdown Ambassador Program is designed for those individuals who go above and beyond attending, volunteering at or presenting material at a seminar.

Becoming an ambassador warrants a deep and active commitment to spreading the knowledge and awareness of Safety Standdown. The qualifications, benefits and rewards of becoming a Standdown Ambassador are many, but more importantly, the contribution to a safer global community is priceless.
