United States 2013

SEP 30-OCT 3, 2013
Hyatt Regency Wichita
Wichita, Kansas

The 17th annual Safety Standdown USA is now concluded.

 

 

 

 

2013 proved to be a year of change for Safety Standdown USA. New leadership, addition of the CyberFlightDeck social hour, changeup in dinner speaker, utilizing the 2013 Eugene Cernan Safety Award winner to share his experiences, and much more.

This year hosted well over 450 attendees, new workshop presenters as well as new workshops. We brought back practical training - just as you asked. Overall, the seminar was a great success, thanks to the help of so many volunteers and employees who share the same mission of spreading the message of aviation safety to the world.
