About the Event
The Australasian Society of Aerospace Medicine (ASAM) is the authoritative professional body whose role is to cultivate and promote aerospace medicine and related disciplines in Australasia. Comprising more than 800 members from many fields of medical practice the Society has provided professional development for its members by hosting successful scientific meetings most years.
This year’s conference focus is on aviation medicine in the commercial airline environment with the theme “In for the long haul”.
We were most fortunate to secure Captain David Evans as the 2013 John Lane Orator. Captain Evans is a Qantas A380 check and training captain and one of the five flight-deck pilots who successfully resolved the QF32 uncontained engine failure incident in November 2010. We also welcomed our Patterson Trust speaker, Dr Rob Lee. Dr Lee is an international consultant in human factors and systems safety in aviation and in other high technology industries. Dr Lee is a Group Captain in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Specialist Reserve and was previously director of the Australian Bureau of Air Safety Investigation (BASI), which became part of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB).
The first day of sessions was held at The Sheraton Hotel & Towers Hong Kong, followed by the Welcome Reception. Cathay Pacific Airways were generous enough to provide a rare and rich opportunity for delegates to experience the complex and challenging operations of a major airline. The following two days consisted of conference sessions and technical visits at Cathay City and surrounds (Cathay City is the headquarters of Cathay Pacific that has training facilities and administration “under one roof”).
To finish off a successful Conference, the Dinner was held at the Jumbo Floating Restaurant, Hong Kong which was enjoyed by all!
