AFIS Seminar 2014
Event date9 - 10 Sep 2014
For the fifth time, it is our pleasure to host the International AFIS Seminar, which this year takes place on 9 – 10 September. The seminar is a unique annual event for the AFIS community and this year we had the honour of welcoming more than 50 AFIS operators, national CAA officers, and managers from 13 different countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, France, Indonesia, Iceland, Latvia, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK. It has proven to be an excellent opportunity to actively share the latest news, developments, and best practices while generating professional discussions and new ideas.
This year’s seminar looked into AFIS throughout the world – we have now collected data from 70 countries. The participants’ presentations showed how diverse the development of AFIS in the world is – it ranges from countries considering the introduction of AFIS to others with more than 40 years of AFIS operational experience. The seminar introduced the members to accident and incident investigation, explained the EASA rulemaking process, presented UAV operations in FIS airspace and FIS en-route services in Denmark. The participants were also informed about the formation of the international AFIS association initiated by Paul Brown in the UK. The event once again provided an excellent opportunity for participants to develop and learn from each other’s experiences.
We would like to thank all of the participants for making 2014’s AFIS Seminar a great success.
