The WATS 2015 conference theme is 'Targeted Training Interventions and Aviation Safety'. This year's conference streams included over 100 carefully selected presentations. Alongside the regular five conference streams of World Airline Pilot Training, Regional Airline Pilot Training, Cabin Crew Training, Maintenance Training, and the Sesión en Lengua Española, this year we introduced a new Helicopter Aviation Training symposium.

The rotary wing sector requires special attention because of the very demanding operating environments often involved, while current simulation technologies bring more effective training solutions within reach for many operators. The Helicopter Aviation Training Symposium will address these issues while exhibitors will show the latest techniques and technology to support helicopter trainers.

The following links will take you straight to the conference programme for each of the six streams:

The WATS 2015 tradeshow will be bigger and more varied than ever, with helicopter as well as fixed wing training providers, equipment and simulator manufacturers, software and content providers, plus airlines and representatives from regulators.
