Conference Highlight – In the Fire with AVS-1

On March 14, ARSA Executive Director Sarah MacLeod opened the Symposium portion of the Annual Conference with a “fireside chat” with FAA Associate Administrator for Aviation Safety David Boulter. There were no real flames on stage, but an intense and engaged discussion of the state of the aviation industry. View a clip from the discussion where MacLeod and Boulter discuss SMS, training, and more.

This clip was included as the “Legal Brief” in the March edition of ARSA’s members-only hotline newsletter. All registered contacts should receive theirs on the first Friday of each month.
