ICM Aviation holding first ever international aviation conference on IOM


Aviation conference to put Isle of Man on the map

The first ever international aviation conference to be organised on the Isle of Man is due to take place on the 12 July 2011. Douglas based company ICM Aviation is organising the
event with the support of the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry.

Mark Byrne, director of ICM Aviation said:”Following the fantastic success of the Isle of Man Registry in
putting the Island on the international aviation industry’s radar, I wanted us
to organise something that would showcase the Island’s wide range of
aviation interests which includes engineering and manufacturing, design and
maintenance. We will also be celebrating the Aircraft Registry’s 4th

added “We are encouraging visiting delegates to stay on the island for longer
than the day of the conference to enjoy all of the leisure pursuits on offer as
well as the glorious Manx countryside. We expect some of our speakers and
delegates to fly their own aircraft over for the event so are hoping for good
weather. We have arranged a post conference hangar party at the Isle of Man airport to celebrate what we believe will be
a positive event for the island’s aviation industry and maybe just the first
aviation conference of many.”

of the Isle of Man Civil Aviation Administration, Brian Johnson, who is a
speaker at the event, has been a key player in developing the Isle of Man
Aircraft Registry since its creation in May 2007. 

said “This
ICM Aviation initiative is a superb opportunity for the Island
to showcase its growing involvement in the global aviation industry. For
example, did you know that every new Airbus and Boeing airliner is flying with
parts manufactured in the Isle of Man? We look
forward to sharing more Isle of Man stories on
the 12 July.”

Byrne commented:”I think this is going to be an extremely interesting
conference. We have a great list of speakers who will all bring something
different to the day. Stuart Peters from Manx Radio has agreed to compère the
event. His involvement is very apt as he holds a private pilot license himself
and understands the world of aviation. We hope that by the end of the
conference all of the delegates will have a much better idea of the expertise
on offer here and be inspired to look for new business opportunities with Manx
based aviation professionals.”
