Vueling welcomes the International safety course "Human Factors in Flight Safety" of the European Association for Aviation Psychology (EAAP)

European aviation personnel will be trained on the importance of human factors in aviation safety management at Vueling's headquarters in Barcelona

Vueling is to host the 19th edition of the prestigious International Safety course "Human Factors in Flight Safety" organized by the European Association for Aviation Psychology (EAAP) at its HQ in Barcelona, Spain during 21st to 25th May.

In a programme led by Dr. Rob Lee, Kristina Pollack and Brent Hayward, a team of Australian psychologists and consultants with extensive experience in applied psychology in the field of aviation will provide special training on enhanced safety management to professionals from European aviation organizations.

The course is designed to provide specific knowledge and applicable tools for better management of security throughout the operation (air traffic control, maintenance and flight safety). During the course the participants will discuss issues related to systems security management, risk management system, as well as issues related to the prevention and investigation of incidents and accidents and reporting to authorities.

Since its inception the course has been continually modified and updated to address the human factor aspects of ongoing changes to the global aviation system.  In the past the course has been well-attended by personnel representing many IATA member airlines, ATS providers, aircraft manufacturers, military forces, aviation regulators and air safety investigation agencies from many countries within Europe, the Middle East, the Asia Pacific Region, and North and South America.

"We are very excited to host this prestigious safety course by the EAAP at our headquarters.   In our company we believe it is essential to integrate security into our corporate culture, andinitiatives such as this undoubtedly contribute to that,"  commented Fernando Val, COO at Vueling.

In July 2012 Vueling received the IOSA quality certification, issued by the top regulator within the airline industry, IATA, recognizing the high standards that the airline applies to all of its production processes.
