Setting Priorities - Implementing Capabilities - Delivering Benefits

Agenda Update Alert: click for more info

One of Aviation Week’s core missions to better serve aviation and aerospace professionals is to Simplify & Integrate. Simplify the information overload in your daily professional life and integrate for higher value, return. For Events, that means optimizing the experience through the careful balance of efficiency, your budget and the knowledge and actionable insights you bring back to your workplace.

With this as a foundation, it’s no secret that Next Gen ATM is one of the many programs whose funding is being affected by sequestration. We all know how vitally important it is for this program to move forward now and remain on schedule - for passenger safety, fuel and aircraft efficiency, and airports handling increased capacity.

We are committed to moving forward with this industry-leading event, and responding to the topics and tracks you are most interested in. Due to overwhelming responses to the following topics, they have been converted to plenary sessions:

  • ADS-B – due to the impact of the upcoming Iridium NEXT satellite launches, Sat-Com session has been integrated into ADS-B
  • UAS Integration & Implications
  • Data-Comm – latest program updates and progress

We look forward to you attending, as together, we bring a fact-based, actionable sense of urgency to stakeholders in the Beltway…and around the world.
