2018 Plenary Session
The MPASG had the honour of opening the business proceedings for the Tokyo AGM. Prior to the formal start of the MPASG Session Hideki Mishima provided AGM Delegates with a broad, but comprehensive, overview of the development of the Japanese airline and aviation market. Robert Lilley, in his final appearance as Chairman of the MPASG, then gave a general overview of premiums, claims, exposures and estimated capacity across the sector. Alexis Daniel presented on the use of composite materials, followed by Simon Abbott, who looked at aspects of Manufacturers' Hull Insurances. Roger Sethsson followed up with a review of ATC issues, including the growing use of Remote Towers. John Wadhams then looked at grounding losses, particularly traditional grounding v non-occurence.
The session ended with a lively Q & A session between a Panel drawn from the MPASG and Delegates.
At the close of the Tokyo AGM Michel Rohr took over the Chairmanship of the MPASG from Robert who stepped down from the Study Group to Join the Executive Committee.
