1 Co-Sponsors: USAIG & NBAA Along with Regional Host: L.J. Aviation Present PITTSBURGH AREA AVIATION SAFETY DAY August 9, 2012 The Conference Center at PPG Place Pittsburgh, PA Fly Safer Advance Your Knowledge Network with Aviation Peers
2 A chance to connect, stay informed and enhance safety These are the themes behind the Pittsburgh Area Aviation Safety Day (PAASD). As a leading insurer of aviation operations world wide, USAIG understands the importance of staying on the leading edge of safety as well as the challenges it presents for today s busy operators. That inspired us to collaborate with NBAA to design a regional event that s easy and worthwhile to attend. Attending is free because we believe safety events shouldn t trigger a cost benefit quandary over whether you or your employees can afford to participate. But don t let no charge fool you into thinking the presentations are anything other than top notch. We ve included a Runway Excursion Prevention workshop that was developed in collaboration with NBAA s Northeast Region. It s been approved for Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) continuing education credit and was hailed as a must attend by participants at sessions previously held in New York and Connecticut. Two experienced attorney pilots from Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP s top tier Aviation Group will discuss trends and impacts regarding the criminalization of aviation mishaps. Finally, renowned aviation human factors expert and safety advocate Bob Agostino will round out the day, bringing the same safety passion to his presentation for which he was known through 15 years as Learjet/Bombardier s Operations Director and as founder of the Bombardier Safety Standdown. For a regional host, Latrobe (LBE) based L.J. Aviation was a natural fit. L.J. Aviation has built a stellar legacy as a safety conscious aviation organization over three decades, and in 2011 received the Pennsylvania L.J. Aviation: 2011 PA Governor s award recipient. Governor s Award for Safety Excellence. On accepting the award CEO and President, Ed Kilkeary, Sr. said it was a "testament to the diligence and rigor that our company has placed on safety in the workplace and for our clientele. Since our founding in 1980, safety has been a key part of our everyday operations." Keeping safety at the forefront every day is sound business strategy that requires pausing occasionally from the normal routine to remain up to date on safety topics and share some thoughts and views with other safety minded operators. That s what s happening at PAASD on August 9, See you there!

3 Pittsburgh Area Aviation Safety Day - Program 8:30 AM Arrival and light refreshments 8:50 AM Welcome Remarks Ed Kilkeary, Sr. President and CEO, L.J. Aviation 9:00 AM to Noon (two breaks included) Noon 1:00PM Runway Excursion Prevention Workshop. Runway excursions are a mishap trend on the rise and in many cases, an active aircraft failure isn t to blame. Convergence of weather, runway length, runway condition, and aircraft performance issues can insidiously erode safety margins. Crews failing to recognize increased risk factors and counter them with precisely planned and flown landings are behind many excursions. How do you identify situations that demand extra care and precision? A stabilized approach and landing in the touchdown zone are vital keys, but surprisingly don t assure that you can stop on the runway remaining. What high performance landing techniques can be applied when risk of an overrun is elevated? This workshop focuses on reducing the risk and occurrence of runway excursions through a review of principles and case studies. Moving beyond theory, one presenter shares a candid look at a personal runway excursion experience to broaden the discussion to what happens if the unthinkable occurs. Lunch provided 1:00 2:00 PM Does Criminalization of Aviation Accidents Impact Safety? This presentation will address national and international experience and trends related to the criminalization of unintentional, negligent conduct in aviation; how the criminalization of aviation and the existence of parallel criminal and safety investigations can negatively affect the proper investigation of accidents and the prompt determination of accident causation; and how criminalization of aviation can impede just culture safety occurrence reporting and other voluntary information sharing that helps prevent aviation accidents. The presentation will argue that criminalization of aviation accidents does not deter behavior or errors that typically lead to accidents, but instead negatively restricts the candid and open determination and exchange of information that is necessary to enhance safety and to prevent future accidents. 2:00 2:15 PM Break 2:15 3:30 PM Cultivating Excellence in Captains. Despite many advances in addressing safety risk at various tiers in the modern aviation environment, the Captain, or pilot in command, still owns the final say on how a flight is flown and how contingencies are handled. To a degree unequaled elsewhere in the process, the flight s outcome rests on the judgment and actions of the PIC. A popular adage says, The best cockpit safety device is a well trained pilot. Excellent captains apply not only sharp skills honed through training, but also an enlightened approach to engaging the safety partners and processes around them, both inside and outside the cockpit. This session will engage the group in a discussion about the features of excellent aircraft captains, their leadership traits and styles. Whether you re seeking that first sign off or have many years in the left seat, this session will inspire you to reflect and help you improve.
