Bermuda to stage aviation conference

Aviation industry high-flyers are to touch down in Bermuda next week for a major conference — the first of its kind on the island.

Around 100 delegates will discuss aircraft registration, risk management and changes to international law to reduce costs and ease financial transactions across international borders in a forum organised by specialist firm AeroPodium.

Kevin Richards, BDA business development manager, said: “Thanks to AeroPodium, we'll be able to showcase the leading role our jurisdiction has played in this industry.

“We're looking forward to meeting partners from other offshore centres to discuss pertinent issues and share best practices.”

Bermuda, which operates the largest offshore aircraft registry in the world, this month abolished the Department of Civil Aviation, replacing it with the semi-autonomous Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority.

Thomas Dunstan, director of the BCAA, will make the keynote speech at the conference, due to be held at the Hamilton Princess on Monday and Tuesday.

Mr Dunstan said: “The timing is perfect and this will be our first official event as the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority. The conference will allow us to launch our new brand and celebrate this new chapter in the history of Bermuda's civil aviation.”

Panagiotis Panagopoulos, CEO and founder of AeroPodium, said: “Bermuda is the ideal location for this year's conference and more international delegates than in previous years are expected to attend.”

High flyers: private jets at the LF Wade International Airport
