In 2016 the 19th WATS will be a four day event with over 100 carefully selected presentations.

The aviation training industry continues to deal with enormous growth prospects, while embracing new aircraft technologies and dealing with a challenging business environment. As ever, the challenge is to embrace training "best practice", maximise personnel transfer-of-training, and achieve optimum human performance and operational safety. It is therefore appropriate that the overall theme of WATS 2016 is "Optimizing Blended Learning and Training Technology."
