The Past
The PAvCon event started in 2009 built upon three successful police aviation conferences undertaken by the same team in earlier years. Since 2009 PAvCon has attracted speakers from across the globe and subject matter has included; the laser threat, high rise building escape, major events, surveillance, innovation, tactics and a range of technical presentations. For the sake of continuity of thought, purpose and execution we have a core team that  seeks to challenge established thinking and processes in bringing you a thought provoking three-days of discussion and networking. We are a team focused on the subject of law enforcement aviation. Our target market is middle and lower management planners and decision makers– the primary people who influence the final shape of the purchase.
The Future
As a continuation of PAvCon,  PAvConEurope (PAvConE) seeks to further cooperation and information transfer between the various European Public Order (Air Support) Agencies. As requested by active members of the Agencies that make up the 2017 – 2019 PAvConE Committee, PAvConE will strive to increase the catchment area of potential interest (within Europe and beyond) while explaining the advantages of understanding a ‘FRAT’ and at the same time  hammering home the very real dangers inherent in an IIMC.
Who Is PAvCon Europe?
President - Bryn Elliott
After spending over 30 years in London’s Metropolitan Police [1965-1996]  and researching police and emergency services aviation Bryn set up a newsletter for the industry that has now evolved into the free access monthly e-magazine Police Aviation News [PAN]. PAN was one of the first of many such e-magazines  to become available and has evolved to cover all airborne aspects of the emergency services. After Alexander Shephard invited him to assist with the programme content of a new series of Police Aviation Conferences in 06 three similar conferences were organised in the UK and Netherlands [2006/2007/2008]. PAvCon is a continuation and development of the original Shephard formula.
