SAFETY COLLABORATION

What

Australia’s foremost aviation safety event

WHERE

Hyatt Hotel, Canberra

WHEN

16–17 October, 2024

Safeskies 2024 will focus on the theme of ‘Safety collaboration’.

The various sectors of aviation – legacy and emerging technology – are doing some great individual work on aviation safety, but it can be disjointed with little or no communication between the sectors. This is where Safeskies Australia comes to the fore: being Australia’s only independent aviation safety advocate gives us a unique opportunity to bring the industry together in safety collaboration – to join the safety dots.

Andre presenting to the Great Hall

Safeskies 2024 will have a new format.

Day one will have elements of previous conference programs, including the well-received presentations from aviation agency heads, but the conference dinner and Sir Reginald Ansett Memorial lecture will be on the evening of day one. Day 2 will follow a completely new format, one designed to be more interactive, and give delegates a greater opportunity to be involved. Stay tuned for details!

Over the two days, attendees will hear from international and Australian experts in aviation safety, focusing on airline operations, recreational aviation, uncrewed operations, emerging technologies such as AAM and the space sector and more.

Safeskies 2024 is an unmatched opportunity to make new connections and rekindle old ones, as the industry’s best and brightest gather at one of Canberra’s icons: the Hyatt.
