Dubbo 27/28 May
Following on from the success of the Mildura Roadshow, we have now locked in the dates and speakers for our next event, to be held in Dubbo at the RFDS facility at the airport on the 27/28 May. Same format as previous with a start at 12:00 on the Thursday 27th, evening meal/drinks and then a 9:00am start on the Friday, finishing around 12:30 with a farewell lunch.
We have been very fortunate to lock in a number of great speakers for this event, including the heads of our aviation agencies, including Mr Graeme Crawford (a/g CEO CASA), Mr Jason Harfield (Airservices Australia) and Mr Greg Hood (ATSB). They will be able to provide attendees with great insight to how these organisations have adapted during Covid and update us all on the priorities going forward.
Joining them will be the CEO of Western Sydney Airport Co, Mr Simon Hickey who will provide us with an update on the progress of the development of the airport and future plans. CEO of Coulson Aviation Mr Chris Smallhorn, the now very familiar aviation fire-fighting outfit here in Australia who have been very prominent in recent bushfires will also provide the audience with a very interesting insight to the challenges they face in their day-to-day operations.
Capping off the speakers list will be the former head of the ATSB team investigating the disappearance of MH370, Mr Peter Foley. Peter has an intricate knowledge of the search, the hows and the whys, without the conspiracy theories. This is a captivating topic that anyone with an ounce of interest in aviation would love to hear directly from the experts involved.
For our evening event, we will be joined by the Deputy Prime Minister, the Hon Michael McCormack and the Minister for Regional Services, the Hon Mark Coulton. Both Ministers will give an address at the evening event highlighting budget measures that will be announced only 2 weeks prior.
Hosted by the RFDS in Dubbo at their new experience center, a perfect backdrop to an aviation event such as this and a great opportunity to learn more about RFDS services. For more information see here.
