To The Conference Program
The Fisher Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies will hold a special conference devoted to the development of aviation infrastructures in Israel on April 18 in Air Force House, Herzliya. Representatives from world and Israeli aviation and senior officials from the ministries of transport, interior and defense will participate.
Some of the issues which will discussed – the coming changes in the infrastructure of the BG international airport, their impact on international aviation and the proposed complementary airport. The requirements of general aviation will be juxtaposed with the distress experienced by the users and the policies laid for developing infrastructures in future. The final session will focus on the possibility of having an alternative to BG airport on an island in the sea. The international consultant Prof. Ronald Waterman will present the technologies and possibilities to apply this solution and a panel will discuss the feasibility of the maritime option.
The conference will be concluded by Giora Rom, director of the Civil Aviation Authority, and Herzle Bodinger, chairman of the Fisher Institute.
Itai Allon, head of the Aviation Safety Research Center in the Fisher Institute notes that "for the very first time the Fisher Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies gathers all the relevant players in planning Israel's future in aviation from the planning and infrastructure aspects to hold a profound, comprehensive discussion of the most acute issues in Israeli aviation just as it stands on the watershed line, considering present and future aviation infrastructure."
