Event Details

In this second Asia briefing by International Coordinating Council of Aerospace Industry Associations (ICCAIA), we are pleased to address topics of deep interest to the aviation/aerospace community, presented by specialists in their field. The sessions will be moderated by our Vice Presidents and Permanent Representatives to ICAO, Mr Dan Carnelly and Ms Nina Brooks.

Mr Anam Nazmul, Regional Officer, Flight Safety of ICAO Asia Pacific Regional Office will introduce the work of ICAO, and in particular the priorities of the Asia Pacific office.

Mr Sean Newsum, Director of Boeing's Environmental Sustainability Strategy will speak on the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), a global market-based measure for aviation emissions. This scheme adopted by ICAO in 2016 is a global offsetting scheme, whereby airlines and other aircraft operators will stabilise aviation's net CO2 emissions at 2020 levels, while other emissions reduction measures are pursued.

Mr Bob Lee, Chairman of ICCAIA's Committee on Communications, Navigation and Surveillance Systems for Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) and Mitch Fox, ICCAIA Representative, will speak on the evolving field of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Traffic Management (UTM). UTM is needed to safely integrate autonomously or remotely controlled operations of unmanned aerial systems into low altitude airspace.
