My company does not fly Bombardier products. Am I still welcome to attend?
Yes, Safety Standdown is not aircraft or manufacturer specific. The information presented is applicable to all aircraft. Similarly, it is open to private pilots as well as business aviation and airline flight crews.
Do I have to be a pilot to attend?
No. While some of our presentations are pilot-focused, many others are applicable to active flight crews, maintenance personnel and management.
We would like to bring our whole flight department, is this acceptable?
Due to limited seminar space, we initially accept up to three representatives per operation from each company. Additional names will be placed on a waiting list and notified if space becomes available.
What can I do to reserve my seat if registration is not open yet?
We can’t guarantee a seat until registration officially opens. Please sign up for our email alerts, see ‘Stay Current With e-Alerts’ and we will notify you when registration opens. The earlier you register, the more likely you are to be confirmed for the seminar.
How much does the seminar cost?
The seminar is offered compliments of Bombardier at no charge to attendees. You are responsible for travel and lodging expenses
If I register and then cannot attend, may my company send someone in my place?
Yes. Just submit an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure you note it is a replacement and identify who is being replaced. Space is limited so it is imperative you contact the seminar office as soon as you know there will be a change.
I am on the waitlist. What are my chances of getting in?
Due to the nature of the aviation industry, we do receive cancellations and openings do become available. You will be notified if there are changes to your waitlist status. Please contact us if you are no longer interested in being on the waitlist.
Is it acceptable to come for half of the seminar?
Safety Standdown has a limited number of seats. In order to maximize the learning experience, we give preference to attendees who can stay for the entire seminar.
Will the presentations be available electronically?
We offer materials authorized and provided by presenters on a password protected page on the website. Information for downloading presentation will be provided prior to the seminar dates. Unfortunately, some presentations may not be available electronically due to copyright issues.
May I bring my video camera or digital camera?
We do not allow photos or video recording during the general session.
What if my personal effects are lost or stolen during the seminar?
We encourage you to take all safety measures in caring for your personal belongings. Neither Bombardier nor the host hotel are responsible for lost or stolen goods during an event.
May I bring my company’s materials to hand out?
No. Safety Standdown is designed to focus on aviation safety training. It is a marketing-free seminar.
What is the dress code for the seminar?
Please dress casually (i.e., dress slacks and polo).
May I bring my friends/spouse to the seminar?
To be admitted to the seminar, each individual must register online to attend. The safety training seminar is intended for active flight crew, maintenance technicians and flight operations managers.

We do not have events planned for people not participating in the seminar.
