Plenary Day 1: Global Harmonization

The first day’s plenary will again be moderated by the FAA’s Steve Bradford (NextGen Chief Scientist) and SESAR’s Michael Standar (SESAR Joint Undertaking, Chief Strategies & External Affairs) and will provide regional updates on major modernization programs (NEXTGEN, SESAR, CARATS) around the world.

The plenary will also focus on the results of ICAO’s 13th Air Navigation Conference “From Development to Implementation,” which encompassed implementation of operational improvements, such as technology, operational concepts, and road maps; and provided an opportunity for Member States and aviation stakeholders to work on global strategies for safety and air navigation planning, development and implementation, and to set priorities for the coming years.
