EASA Air Operations Management Team Seminar – Accountable Manager

Introduction

This workshop replaces the earlier Accountable Manager Seminar.

An industry specific 2 day program designed for Air Operations Management Team personnel and specifically tailored for the Accountable Manager.

The Management System for an AOC holder’s Flight Operations requires fully effective processes. The Accountable Manager is ultimately responsible for safety. They are responsible for ensuring that sufficient funds are available to run the operation to the required standards and that the management of the organization is structured and staffed with suitably qualified Heads of Functional areas.

The seminar will provide training in Management approaches and techniques in order to achieve effective Flight and Ground Operations.

The seminar is highly interactive and promotes practices that have become benchmarks in the industry. It serves as preparation for authority interviews and is also a platform for exchanging experiences with peers in a confidential environment.
