Event Information

4 September 2015

‘Delivering The Future’ is the theme of this forum dedicated to developing the aviation industry thanks to our Regional Industry Leader, Cairns Aviation Skills Centre. 13 years ago a similar forum was hosted and the Cairns Aviation Skills Centre (CASC) was born through the bringing together of industry minds and forethought.

This forum will focus on the further development and growth of the FNQ aviation industry with the aim to create an action plan based on innovative ideas from industry representatives to help shape the next 17 years of aviation growth in the north in all its aspects – airline attraction, freight, training, maintenance and engineering etc.

The event is open to anyone wanting to attend and we encourage anyone involved in the industry to take part and share their ideas at the event.

Margot Richardson, from Business Mapping Solutions, will facilitate the event which features highly respected speakers including:
• Chris Pigott, Cairns Aviation Skills Centre (CASC)
• Murray Ireland, Aero Enterprise Australia (AEA, CASC)
• Jeff Boyd, Chairman, Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA)
• Kevin Brown, Cairns Airport

Latest aviation industry statistics researched by Bill Cummings from Cummings Economics will also be presented at the forum.
