New for this year, this thought-provoking and enlightening pre-conference
workshop discussed the findings of an industry-wide survey
on aeronautical communications.
The workshop was intended to provide information of real
value that industry can use in making decisions on future
directions. The output from the workshop was a 'delegates' view'
of the top 5 issues that datalink should be addressing, to be taken
forward to the conference over the following two days.
