Annual Pennsylvania Aviation Conference

Thanks to all of the speakers, panelists and attendees that participated in ACP’s 37th Annual PA Aviation Conference, September 27 - 29, 2017. When planning an event such as this, it is imperative to gain the participation of experts in the field. Their willingness to share their time and expertise in the aviation industry was critical to the success of this event.

We were fortunate to have a wide range of speakers from all arenas – fuel systems and safety factors, emergency response plans, air service development, modernizing the FAA, higher education and others. It is our collective efforts and thoughts on best practice that help to make the PA aviation industry stronger.

There’s no other Pennsylvania aviation event that matches it.
