The Sir Reginald Ansett Memorial Lecture

The lecture, first held at the 1991 conference, is now an established and successful prelude to each Safeskies conference. It commemorates Sir Reginald Ansett, one of Australia’s great transport industry pioneers. Ansett Transport Industries was one of Australia’s largest and most successful transport conglomerates and included Ansett Airlines of Australia. As head of the conglomerate, Sir Reginald’s influence throughout the transport Industry was great. He is particularly remembered for his significant contribution in encouraging the youth of Australia to learn to fly.
