By Staff Writer | October 21, 2014

Several officials from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will participate in a panel session on safety and regulation this week during NBAA 2014.

John Hickey, the FAA’s deputy associate administrator for aviation safety, will lead the agency delegation participating in the NBAA2014 session, “A Conversation with FAA's Top Safety Leaders,” on Wednesday, Oct. 22 from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in Room S320E at the Orlando County Convention Center. The panel will be moderated by Doug Carr, NBAA vice president for regulatory and international affairs, and Mark Larsen, NBAA senior manager for safety and flight operations.

“The FAA has committed a great team to attend our convention this year,” said Carr. “This session is our community’s opportunity to hear what’s on the FAA’s safety and regulatory agenda while also posing timely questions about the implementation of FAA rules and policies.”


Also participating in the session will be:

John Duncan, director of the FAA’s Flight Standards Service

Steve Douglas, manager of the FAA’s Aircraft Maintenance Division

Les Smith, manager of the FAA’s Air Transportation Division

James Viola, manager of the FAA’s General Aviation and Commercial Division

“With officials responsible for aircraft operations, maintenance, safety and training all in one room, this year’s session is the ideal forum to talk directly with experts on all aspects of business aviation safety,” said Carr. “This session fills up quickly so I suggest attendees arrive early to secure a seat.”
