The AFAP was a major sponsor for this year’s PACDEFF, the largest CRM/NTS and Aviation Human Factors Conference in the world.

The conference was held on 8-10 August 2017 at Novotel on Collins Hotel, Melbourne, and featured three days of speakers and interactive workshops, led by our own member Dr Wayne Martin.

PACDEFF is predominantly practitioner focused, and facilitates the interaction between genuine human factors experts from around the world, and operators, trainers and human factors professionals from airlines, training organisations, airports, air traffic control organisations, and other agencies, both within and outside the aviation industry.
