On 27th September 2017, SAA held its 4th Aviation Insight Series (AvIS) talk for the year, attracting some 62 attendees from the Singapore aviation industry.
We were honored to have Professor Martin Dresner, President, Air Transport Research Society who shared on "Research and Advancing Aviation". Dr Michael Lim, Director, SAA, moderated the Q&A session.
Through intensive research studies, Professor Dresner demonstrated how research plays an important role in helping both industry and government to make more informed decisions. The spectrum of topics ranged from the government’s role in mandating the use of child safety seats for infants on airplanes, to how the performance level is affected by the standardization of aircraft in the airline industry.
