Online Training – Building a Professional Government Relationship
This session provides a roadmap for building a useful relationship with civil aviation authorities. It begins by describing the rules that should always be considered when engaging with aviation safety regulators, then provides instruction on how to introduce your company and maintain consistent contact – not just when there’s a problem. It concludes by providing strategies for maintaining a professional relationship with regulators.
Editor’s Note: When it was recorded the session was titled as offering instruction for a “positive” relationship with the government. Since that recording, the association’s thinking has evolved to recognize that seeking “positivity” is nowhere near as productive or realistic as seeking professionalism.
Instructor: Sarah MacLeod
