NBAA Sessions to Focus on Technology
NBAA will feature three technology-focused sessions at the show next week. The first session, to be held on Oct. 21, is titled “Mobile Technology: Learn How to Manage Devices.” This session will feature presenters from Jeppesen and Air Watch who will provide insight on mobile device management such as what it means, what is available and how it can help manage mobile technologies across operations.
The second session, “Implementing Weather Technology in the Cockpit,” will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 22, and will be presented by Gary Pokodner, Program Manager of FAA’s Weather Technology in the Cockpit (WTIC) program. He will provide an overview of the research being conducted through this program, which is seeking to identify gaps in general aviation (GA) cockpit meteorological information and technology that have the potential to be a casual factor in future GA weather-related accidents. This session will also feature an interactive discussion on how to effectively disseminate WTIC research results to the industry as well as how to get WTIC recommendations incorporated into commercial products without having to implement standards or increase costs.
“Technology in the Cabin” will be NBAA’s third and final technology-related session. Presented by speakers from Bombardier, Boeing and Gulfstream, it will cover cabin management systems, connectivity in the cabins and the future of satellite technology.
