AAIB Centenary Conference: 100 Years of Accident Investigation - what's next?

14 October 2015 - Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS)
 AAIB 100 Logo  Royal-Aeronautical-Society
 In 1915 the first UK ‘Inspector of Accidents’, Captain George Cockburn, was appointed to investigate the underlying causes of aircraft accidents in the Royal Flying Corps. His appointment as the first professional air accident investigator led directly to the formation of the Accidents Investigation Branch, a civilian government organisation, now the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB).


As part of its centenary celebrations the AAIB will be holding a one-day conference on 14 October 2015. The conference, '100 Years of Accident Investigation - what's next?' will be held at the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), 4 Hamilton Place, London. The exciting technical programme will be supported by speakers from a number of UK and overseas organisations, including the AAIB, major aircraft/engine manufacturers, operators and government regulators.


For more details on the programme and to register for the conference, visit: the Royal AeroSoc website. AAIB conference organisers have been assisted by generous sponsorship from Rolls-Royce, easyJet, QinetiQ and Cranfield University. As a result, the fees for this conference are well below the normal range for events at the RAeS in London, with the aim to encourage a broad participation from the aviation community in the UK and overseas.
