ATD Long Island is proud to participate in the ATD Regional Webinar Series. This collaboration of 6 ATD chapters (including Eastern PA, Greater Philadelphia, Mid NJ, Northern NJ, Long Island & New York City) is bringing together the best of our networks to provide world class presenters and content. We look forward to sharing these webinars with you throughout 2021.
The current pandemic COVID 19 gripping our world has demonstrated that ‘business as usual’ has to be reinvented. This is no more evident than in the aviation industry. The industry stalled in 2020. To date (IATA May 2021) overall, industry-wide revenue passenger kilometers were 62.7% lower than pre-pandemic May 2019. Many thousands of flight crew were stood down, furloughed or made redundant.
With the success of vaccination roll-outs, in some countries, positive signs are emerging month on month. The challenge ahead is how to respond with agility to the dynamic operational demand, as we navigate through to a new post pandemic aviation landscape. Flight and cabin crews on the ground for over 12 months need to be mobilized as soon as business returns. Traditional training approaches are no longer fit for purpose.
Catherine Baird, former SVP Crew Training Emirates Airline and Glenn Bull, CEO, Skilitics will be sharing a new approach to training leveraging learning from the health industry.
