Nick Godwin, Managing Director of Commsoft, will be speaking at this year’s Mediterranean Business Aviation Summit (MBA), held on Tuesday 30th June 2015 at The Palace Hotel, Sliema, Malta. Nick will be speaking in the afternoon session, and will be discussing trends in IT systems for maintenance and CAMO in business aviation.
2015 marks the 4th annual MBA Summit. Since its inception, MBA has developed an excellent reputation in the aviation industry; providing a platform for manufacturers, operators and aviation professionals in general to explore all aspects affecting the future of the industry. It is widely regarded as being a unique opportunity to debate the future of business aviation, learn about the latest developments in light jets, explore the regional air taxi market, discuss different business models, learn about the regional infrastructure development, and network with leading experts in the Mediterranean.
In addition to Nick’s session, some of the other topics that will be discussed at the Summit include: consolidation in the regional business aviation market, how to achieve efficiency and reduce costs by using the right software solutions, maintenance programs for aircraft engines and airframes of business jets in the Mediterranean market, and staying compliant under aviation mandates.
MBA is organised by AeroPodium, the podium for Commercial and Business Aviation and for all aviation professionals. Based in London, AeroPodium organises and manages high level international networking business-to-business events for the aviation industry, develop public relations worldwide, and advises organisations and individuals about new challenges and opportunities in both commercial and business aviation.
