Registration for the conference is available now, with early-bird pricing still available, at www.pbnsummit.org.
"Participants will be exposed to thought leaders in airspace reform and will have an opportunity to exchange ideas and practical experience with members of the aviation community from around the world."
CANSO Director General Graham Lake, ICAO's Air Navigation Bureau Director Nancy Graham, FAA Chief Operating Officer Hank Krakowski and Airservices Australia Chief Financial Officer Andrew Clark are just a few of the prominent aviation leaders scheduled to speak at this year's Summit.
Now in its fourth year, the Summit has become the world's most respected forum for the advancement of global PBN technologies that reduce fuel-burn and emissions while paving the way for airspace modernization and optimization.
The Summit program explores the topical issues confronting successful PBN deployment, such as "A New Imperative, Selling PBN to the Community," "Values in Transition: PBN and the Environment," and "PBN's Effect on the Workplace." "Exploring PBN Frontiers: What's Next" will showcase advanced PBN capabilities being implemented by leading-edge organizations. PBN operator-practitioners such as WestJet, Southwest Airlines, Emirates, Air New Zealand, Alaska Airlines and Qantas will share practical experience. Community and social aspects of airspace transformation will be addressed by leading aviation economists, representatives of Airport Councils International and respected aviation consultants.
"This year's program is the most ambitious, the most diverse and the most thought-provoking we've had since the Summit began four years ago," said Naverus General Manager Steve Forte. "Participants will be exposed to thought leaders in airspace reform and will have an opportunity to exchange ideas and practical experience with members of the aviation community from around the world."
The 2010 Global PBN Summit will be held October 19-20 at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center on the Seattle waterfront. Early bird registration rates of $325 are currently available for airlines, ANSPs, regulatory, government and aviation trade personnel and are $450 for all others.
