SKYTALKS: Live stream presentations from ICAO’s 13th Air Navigation Conference

Throughout ICAO’s ten-day Air Navigation Conference we will be live streaming 30-minute workshops that provide exclusive opportunities for not only our Secretariat to showcase our programmes and recent developments, but they will allow the industry to introduce their products and services. We’re sharing these presentations because they draw attention and support ICAO’s Strategic Objectives in the areas of Safety and Air Navigation and they help expand understanding on this area of the industry. 


We will have SO MANY great presentations to share here, make sure to catch all the ones you miss – recordings will become available as the sessions occur!

For optimum viewing, please note the latest version of Internet Explorer (IE), Chrome, Firefox and Safari are recommended.  If using a version of IE11 or earlier, you will need to open the live streaming from this YouTube playlist.
