PODCAST 24: Preparing people for a safe bounce back

This week, training takes the centre stage in our weekly news magazine podcast for the Middle East and Africa.

A leading light in the Women in Aviation movement in the Middle East, Kinda Sarrage, joins us in her ‘day job’ role as vice president sales, for the commercial aviation arm of L3 Harris in Middle East, Africa and South Asia.

 
Kinda talks about the latest initiative to increase pilot numbers for Saudi Arabia as the Kingdom shows great prospects for recovery.
 
Meanwhile in Africa, safety remains a key talking point and training need. Tom Kok, director of the AviAssist Foundation introduces next month’s virtual safety conference over four days and talks about the challenges and success of safety culture across the continent – and explains how listeners could win a watch as they learn about safety.
 
And on the technology front, our space and technology editor Steve Nichols looks into the challenges of face recognition as airports try to improve passenger experience and safe security.
 
This, plus all the news from across the region.
