Part of what separates AViCON from other aviation conferences is the inclusion of two interactive breakout sessions where the attendees leave the conference room and get hands-on experience in investigating and resolving aviation cases.
The second breakout session of 2018 ( check out the first session here ), focuses on the best practices for engine ( and other wreckage) inspections led by a diverse panel of aviation experts including:
- Stephen Carbone, author of The Air Crash Files, and former NTSB major accident investigator with A&P certification.
- Mark Fitzpatrick, an aircraft accident investigator and active aircraft maintenance engineer at Air Transit.
- Nelson Camacho, QBE North America, and former aircraft maintenance technician.
- Robert Braun, Member at Kaplan, Massamillo & Andrews where he focuses on commercial disputes, product liability, and aviation litigation.
