The event was the forth of its kind organized by the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF) in the UK.

The program featured highly relevant research and very competent speakers on:

  • visual scanning in remote tower operations

  • wellbeing and fatigue risk
  • human factors in cyber security
  • aviation automation and what we can learn from driving
  • improving non-technical skills training & the paradox of intuition
  • ground handling safety culture and
  • what middle managers really think about safety & human factors

The rich scientific program got rounded up with scientific posters and stands providing an opportunity to test latest eyetracking equipment and learn about the new university program related to Safety Management and Human Factors in Aviation.

EAAP members got engaged in lively discussions sharing their knowledge and experience and met old and new friends at the various networking opportunities.

Overall the event was of very high quality both in terms of speakers and participants and can only be recommended to EAAP members in the future.
