Patrick Ky, Executive Director of the European Aviation Safety Agency Executive (EASA) will be the keynote speaker during the SAE 2015 International Conference on Icing of Aircraft, Engines, and Structures, which will be held June 22-25, 2015 at the Hotel International Prague in Prague, Czech Republic.

The “SAE 2015 International Conference on Icing of Aircraft, Engines, and Structures” provides participants the highest-quality technical program focusing on meteorology, aircraft icing systems, and ground de-icing operations. Governmental agencies will use this as their platform to discuss critical studies and new developments in icing and deicing standards.

Plenary speakers and presentations include:

  •     Robert Flemming, Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. (Retired) and Richard Lewis, Certification Manager, Airbus – Chairmen's Welcome and Instruction
  •     James Free, Director, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, John H. Glenn Research Center (NASA) – NASA Address
  •     Laurent Fleury, Senior Expert ECS, European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) – New Icing Regulation for Large A/C
  •     Angus Abrams, Senior Expert Propulsion, European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) – New Icing Regulation for Engines
  •     Robert Hettman, Aerospace Engineer, FAA Transport Standards Staff, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) – FAA 14 CFR Part 25 Rulemaking for Flight in Icing
  •     John B. Fisher, Aerospace Engineer, Engine & Propeller Directorate, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) – FAA 14 CFR Part 33 Rulemaking for Turbine Engine Icing
  •     Richard Lewis, Certification Manager, Airbus, Industry Perspective - Large Aircraft – Part 25
  •     Jim Hoppins, Cessna Aircraft Company – Industry Perspective - Small Aircraft - Part 23
  •     Geoff Jones, Rolls Royce, Industry Perspective - Engines

This conference also offers a forum for the aerospace community to meet and discuss the newest regulations governing aircraft icing operations. The latest technologies and systems designed to de-ice, and anti-ice (keep ice from forming on an aircraft) will also be discussed, along with the current and future challenges, and upcoming opportunities within industry. This event is also supported by SAE’s AC-9C, AC-9, and G-12 standards committees, AHS International, and key governmental organizations – NASA, FAA, and EASA – who provide valuable input regarding regulations and technical program content.
