The Pre-Season Symposium is held in the spring and the Post-Season Symposium is held in the autumn. The aim of each symposium is to provide:

  • regulatory feedback
  • safety awareness
  • human factors training
  • identification of lessons learnt and to disseminate best practice to display pilots, event organisers and Flying Display Directors (FDDs).

They also give the Flying Display community an opportunity to share feedback with regulators, in order to improve the Flying Display environment as a whole.
