who were concerned about certain areas of operations were able to hear about those sub- jects and have a more intimate setting with the instructors. The second, and maybe the most important, aspect of this division was that operators really needed to bring all of their experts to the conference. Operators couldn’t just send one person to the event and have that person try to gather the wealth of information that was available. The following “Breakout Tracks” were available to NightCon attendees:


Track 1 - NVG Operator Program Management


Track 2 - NVG Maintenance Program Management


Track 3 - NVG Initial Ground Course Track 4 - NVG Instructor Course Track 5 - NVG Inspection & Repair / Cockpit Conformity


schedule.


The breakout classes all ran on the same There was one hour of class fol-


lowed by 30 minutes of break. Another stroke of genius by the producers was this 30-minute break. The length of the break period allowed the attendees adequate time to digest course


materials as well as network with colleagues and vendors. The strategic placement of all refreshments in the vendor area certainly added to the incentive to visit the vendor area. As one might guess, the conference oppor- tunities in aviation are many.


It seems that


there is a conference every day of the year focusing on one aspect of aviation or another. NightCon 2011 would be viewed as a tremen- dous success if it had been the 15th annual event with all of the lessons learned from pre- vious events filed away. The fact that this was the first one ever makes the success truly amazing. Special thanks should be given to the


Producers and Sponsors of NightCon for bringing such a needed event together for the benefit of an industry. ◆
