Hilton Munich Airport - Munich, Germany



Monday, September 19

7:45 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. AEA Registration Open

8:15 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.

Regulatory Update - SMS in Part 145
Moderated by Ric Peri, AEA V.P. Government & Industry Affairs.

Originally published in November 2021, SMS in Part 145 now has an applicability of 2 December 2022 with a full compliance date of 2 December 2024. And while there is a two-year implementation, it is with limitations, you cannot delay your understanding of the requirements.

AMC/GM Part-145 was finally published on 10 May 2022. While EASA has imbedded SMS into the operations of a Part 145, the resulting change to the AMC calls for extensive changes to the Part 145 exposition.

Some of these SMS aspects integrated in existing Part[1]145 AMC & GM include:

  • New concepts and policy (e.g. just culture, safety policy and objectives);
  • New terminology (e.g. ‘compliance monitoring’ instead of ‘quality system’, ‘safety training’ instead of ‘HF training’);
  • New organization processes (e.g. internal safety reporting scheme, risk assessment);
  • New roles and functions (e.g. safety manager);
  • Addressing specific threats (e.g. fatigue).
This session will review the required changes.

Morning break sponsored by Avidyne Corp.
11:15 a.m. - 12 p.m. Trig Avionics

The Nav/Com remains vital for navigation, flight in IFR conditions and for ILS approaches. Trig Avionics recently rolled out its slimline TX56 Nav/Com, which offers some genuinely unique features. Andy Davis, Trig CEO, will give an overview of installing the TX56 and related Trig stack products. The presentation will cover technical capabilities, installation options and configuration with third-party avionics. This is great information for dealers and avionics installers, who will be able to better appreciate the practical benefits of installing a Trig Nav/Com.

1 p.m. - 3 p.m. MAYDAY Safety - A Human Factors Training Tool
Presented by AEROTEAM Training Solutions
Focusing on technical training within your maintenance organization is key to securing a high competence level within your technical staff. But what about training of the non-technical skills? It is a requirement to include human factor aspects in your training routines, but how do you do that in a structured and documented way, and more importantly, how do you benefit from this on an individual and organizational level? AEROTEAM Training Solutions specializes in training for technical and operational personnel within the aviation industry and is the inventor of the MAYDAY Training Tools. During this training course, the MAYDAY Safety training tool will be utilized to take you through the world of human factors in a fun and interactive way. The tool is designed to create awareness on the human factor aspects on all levels of your organization, while providing valuable feedback for improvements to management.
