Historic St. John’s, Newfoundland, hosts the 12th annual Canadian Aviation Safety Seminar (CASS) 2000, May 8, 9 and 10 at the Delta St. John’s Hotel and Conference Centre. The theme for CASS 2000 is "Safety Management," and topics will include human factors in aviation accidents, safety management in daily operations, company safety management programs, aerodrome safety issues, barriers to effective air traffic communications, cabin safety, key safety issues from the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, and more.
CASS 2000’s goal is to provide participants, particularly small and medium commercial operators, with specific and usable strategies to guide them in incorporating sound safety management practices in their operations.
These strategies could help break the chain of events that may lead to an occurrence. To help achieve this goal, the CASS 2000 Committee has lined up several high-quality speakers, including Mr. Kevin W. Ward, Director of Civil Aviation, Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand. CASS 2000 has something to offer anyone who has a responsibility for safety: chief executive officers, operations and maintenance managers, aircraft maintenance engineers, safety officers and crew members.
In addition to offering delegates informative discussions from keynote speakers, System Safety, Atlantic Region, has scheduled two days of aviation-related workshops on Monday, May 8, and Tuesday, May 9. Space will be limited for workshop sessions — please register early! Plan on attending, celebrate the millennium, Viking landings and relive the era of trans-Atlantic flights. Names like Amelia Earhart, Alcock and Brown are as familiar to Newfoundland as the icebergs and whales that frequent the coast. Experience the hospitality and history that are unique to this part of the world.
