EASA’s Annual Safety Conference for the 2nd time focuses on General Aviation (the first conference took place in 2014 in Rome) underlining the Agency’s continued commitment towards GA. This year, the conference is taking place in Vienna coinciding with the country’s Presidency of the Council of the EU.

In the past years, EASA and the European GA community have relentlessly worked at making General Aviation regulation simpler, better, accessible and more straightforward. Many waypoints of this action plan - the EASA GA Roadmap - have been achieved but we need to keep moving and take a positive view of the future that comes with many challenges. We need to promote safety together, and we need to better cooperate at all levels in order to revitalise European GA and evolve and develop the sector to face the future in a positive spirit. We need a vision for GA!

Solar flight world record holder André Borschberg will be our keynote speaker

We invite you to participate and discuss with us this vision and the many challenges and opportunities that the future has in store. Help shape the future of General Aviation! A substantial range of European GA manufacturers, developers of hybrid and solar-powered aircraft but also of air taxis and other UAV, cost-sharing platforms as well as GA associations and policy representatives will participate in our sessions. Keynote speaker will be Andrè Borschberg, world record holder for the highest solar-powered flight and for the longest solo-flight in an airplane of any kind. The discussions will focus on safer, simpler and more affordable flying, with panels on innovation, safe and more affordable aircraft as well as the sharing of flights but also airspace – and on our vision for the future of GA!
