The current situation within the world of aviation is very optimistic, although there are a number of contradictions. The big players are buying out the small ones, challenges within aviation security are on the constant increase, and new areas of operation and regulation come into play as drones and commercial space flight become a reality.

Much strategic thinking about the future of air transport needs to be accomplished as it predetermines the economy within the entire region. International Air Transport Association predicts that air travel will double within the next 20 years and freight air transport is already one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy within the European Union. What do aviation leaders think of such predictions?

Kazimieras Simonavičius University and the company Friendly Avia Support have joined forces with the intention of concentrating ideas and deepening the knowledge of air transport by organising a series of public discussions about the industry with its leading managers. More than 20 meetings will take place during the 2017-2019 academic year in which distinguished aviation company managers will share their views and insights on the situation within various fields of air transport and evaluate the region’s airport systems within a global context.

Aviation industry leaders: Gediminas Almantas, CEO of Lithuanian Airports; Gediminas Žiemelis, Chairman of the Board at Avia Solutions Group; Žilvinas Lapinskas, CEO of FL Technics has been participated in the Aviation events.

The events are free to attend, language of discussions is English.

Pastarojo meto oro transporto verslų prognozės itin optimistinės, tačiau aviacijos pasaulyje daugėja ir prieštaravimų. Mažuosius supirkinėja dideli žaidėjai, plečiasi iššūkių civilinės aviacijos saugumui spektras, gimsta visai naujos veiklos sritys: bepiločiai orlaiviai, komercinės kelionės į kosmosą.

Apie oro transporto ateitį būtina mąstyti strategiškai, jis lemia viso regiono ekonomikos būklę. Tarptautinė oro transporto asociacija prognozuoja, kad per 20 metų keleivių oro transportu skaičius padvigubės. Krovinių pervežimai oro transportu jau dabar yra viena iš greičiausiai augančių ekonomikos sričių Europos Sąjungoje. Ką apie šias prognozes mano aviacijos lyderiai?

Siekdamas sutelkti idėjas ir pagilinti aviacijos verslo žinias Kazimiero Simonavičiaus universitetas kartu su įmone „Friendly Avia Support“ organizuoja atvirų susitikimų su aviacijos atstovais ciklą. 2017 – 2019 metais vyksiančiose daugiau nei 20-yje paskaitų, seminarų ir diskusijų oro transporto būklę nagrinėja, regiono oro uostų sistemą globalios aviacijos kontekste vertina bei įžvalgomis dalinasi žinomų aviacijos įmonių vadovai.

Ciklo „Aviation in the Making“ renginiuose dalyvavo tokių įmonių atstovai, kaip: „Lietuvos oro uostai“ generalinis direktorius Gediminas Almantas, „Avia Solutions Group“ tarybos pirmininkas Gediminas Žiemelis, įmonės „FL Technics“ generalinis direktorius Žilvinas Lapinskas ir daugelis kitų aviacijos įmonių vadovų.

Dalyvavimas susitikimuose nemokamas, visi renginiai vyksta anglų kalba.
