2019 Conference details now available

Welcome to Safeskies Australia

What is Safeskies?

Safeskies promotes aviation safety, through its biennial conference and other events, facilitating access to the world’s best aviation safety researchers and practitioners.

Safeskies’ independence allows for a non-partisan approach to aviation safety issues, and provides cross-fertilisation of aviation safety matters for all sectors of the industry, both civil and military aviation.

Safeskies aims to find the best possible solutions to the issues and challenges confronting the aviation industry on the global stage.

Although Safeskies is funded widely by government and industry groups with an interest in aviation safety, it operates independently of all such groups. This independence allows for a non-partisan, holistic approach to aviation safety issues.

How does Safeskies do this?

Safeskies runs the premier aviation safety conference in Australasia and the southern hemisphere, focusing solely on the key current and emerging aviation safety issues.

The biennial conference is preceded by the Sir Reginald Ansett Memorial Lecture and dinner, held in the Great Hall at Australia’s Parliament House.

The conference features the elite of aviation safety experts, both local and international.

The conference attracts all the key players in aviation safety from Australia, as well as many from the immediate region and further afield, providing unique opportunities to network with aviation safety decision makers and influencers.

Safaeskies also participates as a convenor of forums on aviation safety matters.

Who are the people behind Safeskies?

Safeskies board members have the experience and skills to make a substantial contribution towards achieving the goals of the organisation. Many are noted members of the aviation community and provide valuable insight into the sectors they represent.

The Safeskies board is refreshed from time to time to ensure that new ideas and perspectives are injected into the organisation.

Safeskies also has a permanent secretariat which provides continuity and connectivity.

Safeskies also employs the experience and skills of former board members, now life members, as advisors to the board.

Why industry and government need Safeskies

Safeskies provides a unique forum for addressing safety issues in all aviation sectors.

Safeskies has a global reputation that attracts speakers and delegates who are leaders in their fields.

Safeskies is the only Australian forum to cover both civil and defence aviation safety.

As one senior executive said: ‘If Safeskies didn’t exist, we would have to invent it.’

Safeskies’ independence allows it to explore and deliver on issues without interference by industry or government.
