Safeskies was founded in late 1992 as a sub-committee of the CILTA and incorporated separately in 2001; and held the first Conference in October 1993. The 2013 Safeskies Conference will be the eleventh conference in the series.
Safeskies Aviation Safety Conferences
Over the years, Safeskies has brought to Australia a number of well known aviation personnel, including first keynote speaker Mr John Nance. Other distinguished speakers have included space pioneer Dr Bill Gaubatz (Delta-Clipper space project); two Chiefs of the RAAF; NTSB Board Chairman, Mark Rosenker; Former Chairman, CAA UK, Sir Roy McNulty; and Director of the Air Navigation Bureau (ICAO) Ms Nancy Graham.
The theme for the 2015 Conference is ‘Training and Change’. Safeskies has focused from time to time on a range of themes, including ‘Setting the right aviation safety culture’; ‘Safety in the globalised economy’; Learning the lessons of the past’; and ‘Making safety management systems work’.
The Conference is now well established, and is recognised as a significant Aviation Safety Conference in Australasia and the southern hemisphere.
