The Mid-Atlantic Aviation Coalition (MAAC) is hosting the 19th Annual New Jersey Aviation Conference, set for May 2-3, 2014. This is the first year the conference will span over two days, which will “encourage greater participation by offering attendees a symposium on the first day, followed by a value-added, airport-based event on the second day,” stated MAAC Vice President Robert Checchio.
The first day’s symposium is themed “Seize the Day – Build for Tomorrow,” and will feature four panels of experts discussing education, policy, technology, and safety issues, as well as a question and answer session with New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner Jim Simpson. The day will round off with a keynote speech by Master Instructor Rich Stowell.
At the newly implemented ground school component of the conference, attendees will experience a high-level exploration of the wonder of flight. Instructors Rich Stowell and Linda Castner will use biological, historical, and technological context to explain “The Art and Science of Flying Ground School.”
