         collaboration with Member Associations AusALPA and ALPA Singapore.

         attendees through the various considerations of forming and operating
         Local Runway Safety Teams including airport lighting and signage,
         wildlife, rescue/fire services, and runway facilities. The course was
         finalized with a group project simulating the management of an airport

         Booth, and Capt. Ishtiaque Hossein (IFALPA EVP ASIA/PAC). As part

         accross the globe.
