Tutorials - 17 October 2016, Reykjavik, Iceland.

In conjunction with ISASI Annual Seminar 18-20 October 2016

Tutorial 1: Extending the Networks

In connection with the seminar theme (every link is important), the aim of this first tutorial entitled "Extending the Networks" consists of covering the variety of networks that play a role in the investigation of air accidents and incidents. Some are formal, other less formal but all have supported safety investigators in various ways.

From a geographical standpoint, Iceland can be considered as the North-Atlantic link between Europe and North-America. For example, the Icelandic Transportation Safety Board (ITSB) has relied on this concept over the years both at national and international levels.

The objective of this tutorial is to present existing networks, such as NAIG (Nordic Accident Investigation Group) or ENCASIA (European Network of Civil Aviation Safety Investigation Authorities), which have been developed to further enhance cooperation and to provide some support to deal with accidents and incidents.

The tutorial will also put emphasis on the Regional Cooperation promoted by ICAO. It will further explore theconcept of “Networks” that extends to technical advisors, including manufacturers, airlines, ATM, etc.

In order to go beyond the usual Annex 13 framework, the tutorial will highlight other types of networks that have been created during specific investigations.

Tutorial 2: Military Accident Investigations

This tutorial aims to have another gathering of international Military Accident Investigators to share knowledge on their respective capabilities, experiences, processes and procedures with a view to the development of future relationships and common practices. It follows the inaugural meeting of the European Military Air Safety Investigators Forum which took place on 17 April 2013 and the two Military Air Safety Investigation Tutorials held during ISASI 2013 and ISASI 2015.

These forums/tutorials drew growing numbers of military investigators from across Europe, Australia, North America and Asia seeking to share their safety lessons. On 19-21 April 2016 in Albuquerque (New Mexico, USA), the Military Aviation Safety Workshop will address "Sharing Safety Lessons to Preserve Military Readiness".

The other goal of linking this tutorial to the 47th ISASI seminar is to benefit from the experience gained by the civil counterparts over the years. Participants to the tutorial are encouraged to register for the ISASI Seminar that will continue on 18, 19 and 20 October 2016 in Reykjavik, Iceland.

The main outputs of the presentations and discussions of this workshop will also be presented during the ISASI plenary session.
