Topics to be covered:
The event will include a series of Plenary Sessions and Workshops covering the following:
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) - as referenced during the Union's Virtual AGM in 2021, ESG issues are an increasingly important topic for the aerospace sector and should be embraced by the insurance/reinsurance sector. This includes an understanding of the impact of carbon emissions on the environment, progress on the development and use of both the existing Sustainable Aviation Fuels and the proposals for the long term alternatives of Hydrogen and electrification and an examination of the impact of space operations on the environment.
- The aerospace sector has been one of the hardest hit by the global pandemic. The initial problems caused by the almost complete cessation of air travel have been replaced by longer term issues during a period of low activity and a gradual return to operation which impacts on the aircraft, equipment, the operating environment and on the workforce, both on the ground and in the air.
The Legal & Claims Environment Post-Covid - Alongside the operational challenges introduced through COVID, the Pandemic has also seen a number of developments in relation to the legal and jurisdictional environment which are having a knock on effect in terms of claims, both in relation to value and length of time to settlement. The Legal & Claims Session will examine a number of these, including delays in accident investigation and reporting, increasing use of private aircraft for charter operations, personal jurisdiction trends, Litigation Financing and the overall impact of the pandemic on the way that adjustments are handled.
Other topics will include:
Climate Change Litigation - including the risk to aviation safety arising from climate change and associated events.
Malicious Threats - Risk Assessment & Control
5g technology - The Impact on Aviation Safety
Pilot Shortage/Experience in the GA Sector
