Controller-Pilot Symposium Will Have A Completely Different Format Due To The Pandemic

GATCO and the British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA) are hosting the third edition of the Controller-Pilot Symposium in November 2020, which will have a completely different format given the current pandemic.

The event will be online via Webex and will include 5 sessions spread over November, including presentations and panel discussions. Each session will be on a Monday morning at 10am UK time.

The event aims to bring together air traffic controllers, pilots and other aviation and air traffic management professionals to discuss issues of mutual interest. Every session will include time for questions from the audience.

This year’s sessions are (all starting at 10am UK time):

2 November 2020 – The Future of Air Traffic Management. Is this pandemic an opportunity to completely rethink air traffic management, its use of technology, funding mechanisms and business model? 9 November 2020 – Controller-Pilot Operational Interface. An opportunity for air traffic controllers and pilots to ask each other all those questions they never have time to ask on the frequency. 16 November 2020 – Mindfulness and Wellbeing for Pilots and Controllers. How can pilots and air traffic controllers maintain or improve their state of wellbeing and support their peers in the current challenging circumstances? 23 November 2020 – UK Civil Aviation Authority Innovation Hub. The CAA Innovation team will present the work they are doing to shape the technological future of aviation and air traffic management. 30 November 2020 – Post Brexit/COVID Aviation Landscape Panel. An opportunity to find out what industry stakeholders think of the challenges we are facing and how aviation will change going forward.

Additional details will be posted to the GATCO site when complete.
