Abstract Submission Deadline –
Friday 28th February 2020

The growth in commercial aviation in North East Asia continues. In the Republic of Korea alone there is a demand for up to 700 new pilots every year for at least the next 10 years.

The Asian Aviation Education & Training Symposium (AAETS), taking place from 18-19 June 2020 at the InterContinental Seoul COEX, Seoul, Republic of Korea, will show ways of meeting that regional demand for pilots, technicians and cabin crew. Presentations which explore new ideas and developments in aviation training will be welcomed and considered. However, the subjects listed below have been selected by MoLIT, airlines and ATOs from the RoK, so have immediate relevancy for the region.

Abstracts are therefore invited for presentations which include the following issues:


  • How have regulators implemented MPL?
  • What are the results of MPL programmes?
  • What partnerships are available for the ab initio practical training?
  • What pilot selection/aptitude processes work best?
  • What do the latest FFS/FTDs offer for improved training?
  • What is the best use of VR/AR/IR?
  • What are the best methods of delivering UPRT?
  • What are the best SMS?
  • What mobile or tablet-driven LMS are available?


  • What tools can be used to measure safety culture in maintenance organisations/training departments?
  • What human factors education is relevant for maintenance teams?
  • What technologies are available to help manage work/lifestyle?
  • What voluntary reporting systems are available for maintenance teams?
  • What safety management systems are available for maintenance teams?


  • Human factors training – best practices
  • What are the best approaches to CRM training?
  • What are the best practices for handling disabled passengers?
  • How can cabin crew identify human trafficking?
  • What are the best techniques for dealing with disruptive passengers?
  • What is the future of firefighting training?
  • Recurrent training – new insights and lessons learned

Presentations should be planned for a maximum duration of 20 minutes and be designed as a lead-in to a subsequent panel discussion and workshop. If using a slide-based presentation, these should be limited to a maximum of 20 slides. Once the Speakers have presented there will be a short panel discussion led by the Moderator. Each session in the conference hall will be followed by a workshop discussion with the speakers and delegates on that session’s topics.

To propose a presentation please send a maximum 300-word abstract by Friday 28th February 2020. Abstracts are required to be accompanied by a short biography of the speaker, which should include contact information, position and employer, academic background and any conference presentation experience.

Please title your email “AAETS 2020 ABSTRACT” and email to Chris Long, Conference Chair at Copy should also be sent to Fiona Greenyer at We will notify successful speakers on or before 23rd March 2020.

AAETS is an “applied” conference and while full academic papers are not appropriate, we will consider summaries of appropriate aviation training and education research.

Preference will be given to air carriers and training organizations with real world training insights and ‘lessons learned’ information. In no case will sales presentations be accepted.

We sincerely thank all those who propose presentations and will endeavour to respond to all submissions.
