2024 Forum for Aviation Safety Excellence

Aeroclass is pleased to reflect on the inaugural Forum for Aviation Safety Excellence recently held in Vilnius, Lithuania. Organized by our team at Aeroclass, with the invaluable support of our parent company, Avia Solutions Group, the event served as a significant milestone in fostering cross-sectoral collaboration within the aviation safety professionals.

Expert Insights: Strengthening Safety Standards Through Shared Knowledge

Convened at the prestigious Aero City venue, the invitation-only Forum united experts and specialists from across Europe. Beyond informative panels and keynote addresses, the event’s hallmark was its extensive networking session. Here, representatives from airlines, aviation companies, and regulatory bodies engaged in fruitful discussions on pressing challenges and emerging opportunities.

“Our goal for the Forum was to bring together expertise and experience. I’m really proud to say the event exceeded our expectations. We hope to make it an annual tradition. Making aviation safer means breaking down barriers between different parts of the industry and talking openly and the Forum was a big step in that direction. Sharing what we know and learn is key to keeping flights safe, especially in today’s digital world” said Julius Norkunas, Aeroclass CEO.

This high-profile event underscored the imperative of anticipatory emergency planning and seamless coordination to address diverse scenarios effectively.

The summit’s intensive preparation, spanning nearly six months and involving close to 700 personnel, exemplified the commitment to ensuring the security and logistical precision of such monumental gatherings. The complexities of accommodating large aircraft, including Air Force One with its remarkable wingspan, posed unique challenges for local airports. As attendees reflected on the presentation, they gained insights into the intricacies of managing aviation operations during high-stakes events, reaffirming the industry’s dedication to safety and operational excellence.

Future Endeavors: Continuing the Journey Toward Aviation Safety Excellence

Looking ahead, we are committed to organizing more events of similar caliber. By bridging the gap between theory and practice and facilitating meaningful dialogue among industry stakeholders, we aim to further elevate aviation safety standards and foster a culture of continuous improvement.
