Concurrent Workshop Sessions

A1 - Redefining Maintenance Training Utilizing Technology
The use of training is key to attracting and retaining the next generation of aviation professionals. In this session, we look at how new technologies and e-solutions can be employed to optimize technical training programs and make students more efficient. How can maintenance training be modernized and brought to the next level using new technologies? How can web-based training be used most effectively? Exploring the evolution of training approaches and how it may change going forward.

§  Wolfgang Schöberl, Head of Technical Training, Austrian Airlines

A2 – Standardizing Lease Contracts & Maintenance Reserves
In recent years lease contracts have become more complex beasts due to the higher proportion of fleets being leased and the entrance of new generation aircraft with inclusive maintenance programs. With the rise in non-uniform lease agreements, is there a need to create industry standards for lease contracts and guidelines for maintenance reserve calculations? We bring together all the players involved in the lease transaction to discuss how these standards might be obtained while aligning the differing interests of all parties concerned.

B2 – The Future of MRO
Time to gaze into your crystal balls and get your thinking caps on. This session will take the format of roundtable discussions where all participants will get the opportunity to share their vision of the future of the industry and discuss how MRO services might develop and adapt to reflect the altered environment. Each tables’ thoughts will then be fed back to the group as a whole for further debate. What will MRO services look like in 5 years time? Will maintenance still be the key driver or will value added services be more important? How will the dynamics of the MRO-customer relationship change and what factors will cause these shifts? An opportunity to be as visionary as you like and provide some food for thought on future shape of the market.
