The  event is being hosted by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA), at Roda Al Bustan, Dubai. 

The summit welcomed more than 300 regional and international experts to discuss a range of topics that are top priorities for safety of the air transport sector. These ranged from ground handling incidents, communications, dangerous goods, flight data, effective management and reduction of flight overlap, safety performance, as well as evaluating best practices within the industry. 

In the first session, Sally Longstaff, Safety Analyst, Group Safety at Emirates, reviewed a range of techniques and methods for obtaining the best possible data for safety decision makers based on statistics. The Head of Flight Safety at NetJets Europe gave a presentation on how flight data can be used to enhance safety management systems. 

Huw Ross, principal consultant at Helios, spoke about the cyber threats facing the international air transport sector as the industry has faced a range of cyber challenges and risks. He called for stakeholders at all levels to continue focusing on understanding these threats and their impact on safety. The UAE has invested heavily in trying to address these threats, having developed a range of legal frameworks and legislation as well as efforts to establish special centers to monitor these risks. He added that the aviation industry as a whole is working more closely than ever with IT consultants to tackle cyber security challenges and that cyber security within aviation is still at an early stage of development. 

Bikhal Jha, lecturer at the Modern College of Business and Science, analysed a number of ways and means of enhancing the quality of the capabilities of air navigation control centers and crew. The participants also heard a presentation by Dr. Edma Naddaf, Founder and president of EDMA Exec on employee assistance programmes and safety and the impact this can have on workers within the industry. 

The second day of the summit also included a series of interactive workshops, including one on the development of advanced training programs in aviation safety in the Middle East and North Africa region, and on risk management and forecasting, as well as a workshop on safety management systems.
