By way of expert global independent and industry speakers, the 2021 Aircraft Cabin Air Conference will provide a unique insight into the subject matter. Through a modular format, over 4 days (1500-2000 GMT), conference participants will have the opportunity to participate via Zoom, for free, in a wide selection of presentations and talks. These will range from the basic issues of contaminated air, the history, previous research, the flight safety implications and findings, medical aspects of exposures, current research and policy making, review of ICAO, IATA, EASA, IFALPA, ITF, GCAQE and FAA positions and guidance related to the issue, the new GCARS reporting system or discover the very latest news in the development of sensors and filtration technologies to detect and filter contaminated air.
The conference will seek to achieve the following key objectives:
> To provide a historical overview of the contaminated air issue and its causes from the 1950s to present day.
> Map out the flight safety aspects of contaminated air through case studies, discussion and air accident investigation findings.
> Disseminate the latest medical and scientific theories and findings on the health aspects of exposure to contaminated air.
> Guidance of workers compensation, legal and the regulatory aspects of cabin air quality.
> Provide regulators, airlines, occupational health, policy makers, public health officials, engine manufacturers, researchers, academia, airline workers, passengers, media and other interested parties, the opportunity to expand their knowledge and understanding of the contaminated air issue.
> Examine the latest development towards bleed air filtration, contaminated air warning sensor systems and other potential solutions.
