Lufthansa Technik AG Celebration and ARSA Strategic Leadership Conference Ready to Rock Hamburg

ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA – The Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) and Lufthansa Technik AG are pleased to announce the speaker lineup for a joint celebratory event. On Oct. 18-19, 2012, Lufthansa Technik will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) part 145 repair station certificate in conjunction with ARSA’s annual Strategic Leadership Conference (SLC), in Hamburg, Germany.

Speakers include rock star Bruce Dickinson who, in addition to serving as vocalist for heavy metal band Iron Maiden, is a commercial pilot and has recently launched his own aviation repair company in the United Kingdom, Cardiff Aviation. Dickinson will speak to the challenges and opportunities in the aviation maintenance industry and the factors that inspired his passion for aviation.

Joining Dickinson as headlining speakers are the Honorable Philip D. Murphy, U.S. Ambassador to Germany, who will highlight the impact of aviation on trade and international relations; and, via video, Michael Huerta, acting FAA Administrator, who will discuss advances in aviation technology, regulation, and safety.

Day One of the gathering will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lufthansa Techniks’ FAA certificate and decades of transatlantic cooperation in aviation maintenance services. To underscore the importance of the industry’s international character, speakers will highlight the value of close cooperation in aviation for both local and global economies.

Day Two’s SLC is ARSA’s annual invitation-only event for senior executives and leaders in the aviation maintenance industry. The conference facilitates a high-level dialogue surrounding emerging trends and challenges confronting the industry as a whole. The Hamburg event will mark the first time that ARSA has hosted the SLC outside the United States.

The two-day event will feature a variety of panel discussions on topics such as developments in aviation safety, expanding international aviation agreements, safety management systems, and efforts to create a favorable business, regulatory, and legal environment.
