The next CPD session is scheduled for Friday 22 Feb, when I hope to be able to live-stream presentations from

 the joint CAA-RAeS mini-symposium at the Wings over Wairarapa Airshow http://www.wings.org.nz.

 The theme of this symposium:  Is New Zealand Aviation Ready for the Future.

We are planning to run it in two panel sessions from 1300-1700, with Q&A at the end of each session.

 Clearly none of you will be able to 'down tools' and tune in for the entire symposium.

  As such, I propose to stream the final session;1500-1630 technology and event WiFi permitting.
