Call for Incident/Accident reports AND 4 days remaining to register for the ICAR Congress registration
Dear ICAR Air Rescue Commission (AirCom) delegates and colleagues:
I am excited to tell you that we have more than 390 attendees registered for the 2022 ICAR Congress in Montreux next month, and 65 Air Rescue Commission colleagues attending the Air Rescue Commission sessions at the Congress!
REQUEST FOR REPORTS ON ACCIDENTS AND INCIDENTS IN AIR RESCUE OPERATIONS
As we develop our annual summary of incidents and accidents in air rescue operations, I write today to ask you to contact me with any information you have regarding accidents or incidents that you are aware of. If you are attending the ICAR Congress in Montreux next month, please also indicate if you would be willing to either make a very brief presentation about the incident, or simply discuss it in the Air Rescue Commission session on Thursday morning. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Air Rescue Commission Vice President Renaud Guillermet at email@example.com.
