Speakers for this two-day conference include representatives of the Michigan Bureau of Aeronautics, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Security Administration, along with other speakers presenting information regarding current aviation issues.

Failure of an applicant to provide the requested information will be grounds for disqualification.
