Met Symposium

The CAA held the third of its meteorology forums on 19 September 2019. This event brought all of the interested parties in one place to look at the overall Met situation, issues, and local and international developments.

The formal objective of the Met symposium was to better support the dynamism of aviation in the region, through a regular industry meeting. During these meetings, the users, providers, and regulators come together to co-ordinate and collaborate efforts to ensure what is developed is optimal, responsive, and sustainable.

Presentations from this, and previous symposiums, are available below.
