Welcome at the 6th Solo Display Pilots’ (SDP) Safety Workshop

Fast Jet Solo Display Pilot Safety Workshop

Promoting Solo Display Pilots’ Excellence and Safety Culture.

Since the inaugural Viper Meeting in 2014 and the following year’s Fast Jet Solo Display Pilot Safety Seminar, every year at the EAC convention Solo Display Pilots of numerous Air Forces (Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and United Kingdom) meet up in a specially arranged Workshop. We at EAC are very privileged to host such a unique and prestigious event that contributes significantly to enhancing professionalism, excellence and safety at Airshows.

2019’s Convention will start with the SPD Safety Workshop / Symposium, especially arranged for the current and past Fast Jet Solo Display Pilots.
