This year's Forum is being organised by the Flight Safety Foundation European Advisory Committee and is again co-sponsored by the Flight Safety Foundation, European Regions Airline Association and EUROCONTROL. It will take place at the EUROCONTROL Headquarters where at least 250 front line professionals and those who train and manage them will be able to hear presentations and discuss the Safety Forum’s findings on Safety & Procedures.

The Forum will exchange industry’s best practice that can promote and improve the creation and application of safe procedures. During breakout sessions we will brainstorm ideas that can further improve the procedure creation and application process.


The agenda will be published 1 March 2020.


Registration opens 1 March 2020. There is no registration fee but attendees are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements.

Airport Surface Risk

In aviation, the majority of accidents and incidents happen in and around airports, mainly during approach and landing.

What is meant by “Airport Surface Risk”? For this Safety Forum the organizing committee decided that it would like to narrow it down to issues around: Runway Excursion, Landing, Take-Off or Line-Up on the wrong surface and Ground Operations.

We are looking forward to exchanging ideas and experiences on the development of procedures, hearing about real-life cases, and sharing industry practices, new developments, new ideas, studies and more that will help or have helped to reduce the “Airport Surface” risk

Without any doubt, we can learn from each other.
