Aviation Safety & Operations: Preparing for growth in China

Inmarsat is to co-host the International Technical Seminar on Aviation Safety and Operations in Chengdu, China, with our partners China Transport Telecommunications & Information Center (CTTIC) and Aviation Data Communication Corporation (ADCC), to help Chinese airlines prepare for the future of aviation safety and operations in this important market.

China is on track to become the world’s largest aviation market in the next 10 years, with an expected increase of one billion new passengers and the addition of 7,000 new aircraft. New regulatory requirements by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) require airlines to have the latest technologies to meet this increase in aviation demand and fly more efficiently and safely.

As the only satcom provider authorised to provide safety services and to have a Satellite Access Station in China, we will be showcasing how, together with our local partners, we enable airlines not only to meet safety requirements but also benefit from digital aircraft operations via our Inmarsat SBB and SB-S solutions.

Digital operations

The conference, which is being held on 19-20 September and sponsored by Cobham Aerospace, will provide airlines with up-to-date information on new regulations, technologies, applications and solutions for digital aviation safety and operations.

The two-day event will feature presentations from members of the Inmarsat Aircraft Operations and Safety (AOS) team on our strategy, technology roadmap, an update on cybersecurity and a panel on best practices for digital operations.

There will also be presentations by China aviation regulatory officials from CAAC, our partners CTTIC and ADCC, ICAO, Cobham Aerospace, Airbus, Teledyne Controls, Collins Aerospace and Inmarsat Certified Application Providers Smart4Aviation and WxOps. Case studies will be provided by Shenzhen Airlines, which has been flying with SB-S since 2017 and Hawaiian Airlines, which has been using SB-S since 2015.

Around 200 attendees are expected and will include key decision-makers from all of China’s major airlines in the areas of operations and safety, maintenance, and aviation standards; officials from CAAC and Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC); representatives of international aviation organizations and senior management of Inmarsat, CTTIC, ADCC and our industry partners.
