I'm interested in attending

This workshop also includes the learnings and findings from the States that early adopted PBN. 

State regulators will learn:

Air operators will learn: 

✔ how to carry out the PBN operational approval process more efficiently, reducing both time and resource requirements
✔ their role and responsibilities in the approval process
✔ the assessment tasks of each area implicated for PBN approvals: airworthiness and flight operations
