Post event commentary – IOM Aviation Conference

The 7th annual Isle of Man Aviation Conference was organised by Martyn Fiddler Aviation and supported by the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry. This year’s conference took place on Thursday 22 June at the Villa Marina in Douglas.

The event attracted high profile speakers and delegates from all over the world. Panels and education sessions held throughout the day covered timely and important issues, such as the implications of Brexit for business aviation, setting up an aviation business on the Isle of Man, security and top advocacy priorities across Europe.
