please enjoy the first virtual-round-table conference with 35 guest speakers. Feel free to add ideas and questions in the virtual classroom text chat. We are very much looking forward to your comments and feedback.
Have a nice day.
Well, Violeta, you should know better than to ask a Brit about the weather....! But because you asked, I will tell you.... it's been TERRIBLE! Fortunately, we just had a wonderful airshow in the town and the weather cleared up just for those few days.
I am very interested in participating in the net Round Table aviation discussion. Henry's new book will not be published until spring 2010, but before that I think it would be useful to discuss how we (aviation teachers/trainers) can develop ourselves professionally. What strategies have others used to stay "in-the-loop" regarding recent developments e.g. Crew Resource Management, training for the ICAO Language Proficiency Requirements, Civil/Military integration? Can we, in private and state-run organisations, share our resources a little more? After all, it's about safety.
Thanks for the contact,
Violeta, thank you very much for the initiative of promoting such an event. I really hope to take part of others in a near future.
I teach pilots here in Brazil, with Liz Rossi and Cybele Gallo (who also took part of the Round Table).
Hope to keep in touch with you!
Violeta, thank you for the opportunity you gave me to join. It was indeed very informative and I don´t feel alone anymore in this crusade...we have ZERO opportunities here in Bolivia to be in contact with professionals, so I was really happy.
You did an excellent job!
I was thrilled to be asked to join the virtual round table and it was a pleasure to meet folks virtually. I couldn't have had two better people to guide me through it than Heike and Holly.
How interesting that you have worked for OUP. Now, if you live in Varna, you must be on the Black Sea coast - a region I've heard is very beautiful. One day I hope to come and see it and I'll let you know when I do.
I'm not sure if I'll be able to attend the discussion on June 26th. I'll do my best to be online but I'll be travelling that day and I have no idea what time I'll be back.
As for me, I worked at the Air Force Academy but now I'm at the General Staff of the BG Armed Forces and I don't teach any more. Yet, such a discussion would be very interesting and I'm sure we'd all enjoy it.
I received an email directly to my yahoo account.
I look forward to the meeting as well-
FYI, I work in Bolivia for Boliviana de Aviacion, a new airline which started only 2 months ago, as advisor and supervisor for the Cabin Crew Department. However, since I am a TESOL and TEFOL certified teacher, I have been asked to teach Aviation English to our pilots.
Greetings from Bolivia
