Defence Aviation Safety 2024 Conference

Minimising Aerospace Casualties Through Education, Technology and Accountability

October 2-3, 2024 - London, United Kingdom

We are delighted to announce the 6th annual Defence Aviation Safety conference, taking place in London on the 2nd-3rd October 2024.

As the only event specifically focused on defence safety for the military aviation community, Defence Aviation Safety offers a unique opportunity for leaders and experts to meet and share best practice that will save lives and protect capability.

Keeping aircraft airworthy and creating a safety culture across military aviation has never been more important as many defence forces continue to extend the lifecycle of their platforms and systems. Likewise, the growing need for more effective certification processes when onboarding new platforms into service, and maintaining these to the required flying standard, is key to all nations that want to remain prepared for high tempo operations.

While the primary focus of this event will be on safety in defence aviation, it will also be of interest to those involved in the acquisition and safe operation of unmanned systems and to those concerned with the certification of all equipment types.

Benefits of attending

  • The only dedicated event specifically focused on Defence Aviation Safety
  • Meet with Heads of Safety from Military Stakeholders and International Experts (government and industry)
  • Uncover new systems and technologies that will optimise your military safety processes
  • Hear from UK MoD Senior Leaders on how they are creating safety first cultures across their respective organisations

The Defence Aviation Safety 2024 conference will bring together leaders from around the world to focus on strategies to enhance the protection of lives and capability for aviators and ground crew operating in todays battle environment.

We are globally recognised by the Military Aviation Community as experts and leaders in Defence Safety and therefore we welcome the opportunity to strengthen this network and knowledge.
