The Safety Standdown originated in 1996 as a safety-training event for the Bombardier Learjet flight demonstration team, but quickly gained a reputation for excellence beyond Bombardier’s customer base.
In 2000, growing interest prompted us to open the seminar to all pilots and aviation professionals, whether corporate, commercial or military.
Today, Safety Standdown is firmly established as an aviation industry pillar, with a seminar every autumn in Wichita, Kansas, drawing more than 450 attendees.
In addition, a European seminar in Geneva, Switzerland, began in 2007. Bombardier organized the first Latin America edition in São Paulo, Brazil, in 2010, and added an Asia edition in 2011 in Shanghai China. In 2013, an internal Safety Standdown was conducted in Montreal for leaders and employees within Bombardier, to share the message of aviation safety within the company. In 2014, live webcasting was added to the USA seminar for those unable to attend in person.
