FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt will deliver a keynote speech during the Pilot Training Reform Symposium in May in Atlanta. Babbitt will address “Meeting the Training Challenges of the Second Century Of Flight” on the second day of the two-day event.
In addition to securing the FAA Administrator, symposium organizers have assembled more than two dozen panelists and speakers from the general aviation industry. The purpose of the symposium is to identify the issues behind decreased student starts, increased student attrition, a flat lined fatal accident rate, and stagnated growth, and to develop an action plan to improve and modernize the flight training delivery system.
The Pilot Training Reform Symposium will convene at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Atlanta on May 4-5. The invitation-only event is expected to draw hundreds of top aviation professionals, according to organizers.
