Avionics for NextGen 2015

Event Information

Avionics for NextGen 2015 will have two full days of panels, seven networking opportunities, and keynote presentations bringing together a diverse set of perspectives discussing one common goal: the 21st century modernization of the National Airspace System.

The event will be held at the Hilton, Washington-Dulles from October 14-15, 2015.

Avionics for NextGen has worked closely with the FAA and members of our advisory board to develop the selection of session topics and speakers for the conference. Members of our advisory board include top experts from Honeywell Aerospace, Rockwell Collins, Esterline, Teledyne, American Airlines and Air France KLM.

The conference has made an effort to structure the conference so that both days provide in-depth analysis of the FAA's four identified NextGen priorities, in a manner that provides information relevant to individuals from all different backgrounds across the industry including engineers, pilots, air traffic controllers, executives and more.

Speakers will discuss the challenges associated with providing new procedures and re-categorizing aircraft wake turbulence characteristics to create increased peak throughput at the nation's busiest airports. Attendees will learn from pilots and air traffic controllers about the benefits of using Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) for pre-departure clearances, and Required Navigation Performance (RNP) procedures to save fuel and aircraft emissions. Air traffic management professionals will also share their progress with the NextGen program’s various objectives to modernize the efficiency of the National Airspace System.

By attending Avionics for NextGen you will have a deeper understanding of the actual aspects of the program that are being operationalized right now, today. You will also leave with a better understanding of return on investment and benefits provided by equipping your aircraft with the avionics technology that is required for the Next Generation flight environment.
