PLENARY SESSION III: The Future Aviation Workforce: What’s in Store?

The aviation industry is resilient and will recover from the global pandemic. We must continue our efforts to attract the next generation of talent and increase diversity and inclusion into aviation, including the airport development industry. What are the latest efforts and initiatives being used to attract new talent into aviation? How can industry effectively engage students and promote airports as a career? And what kinds of skills sets will be needed in the future to take advantages of the many technological innovations underway in aviation. Join us for the informative panel discussion that will explore the many initiatives underway at FAA and industry to fill the future pipeline of airport development experts.

CONCURRENT SESSION: Future of Airport Funding & the Air Cargo Effect

A discussion on the future of airport funding in general and with reference to the latest effects of COVID-19. Is a move to more privatization now more realistic as airports have taken a substantial financial hit? The session will also discuss the recent shift in focus on cargo development for airports to enhance non-aeronautical revenues and take advantage of the pandemic affected needs to order more from the comfort of home (could this be the new norm?)
