PAvCon Europe 2024 Guide To Speakers
Glenn DALEY Lieutenant NYPD [Ret] Glenn has been the staple speaker at most of the European Police Aviation Conferences since 2006. He brings to PAvCon Europe a range of presentations honed by being presented at the annual Airborne Law Enforcement Association now Airborne Public Safety Aviation [APSA] in the USA. He will be speaking on CRM - Crew Resource Management - and pointers for avoiding entry into IIMC — Inadvertent Instrument Meteorological Conditions— one of the biggest killers in aviation. Glenn served with the New York City Police Department from 1981 to 2004. During his 23 year career he held numerous enforcement assignments including assignment to the Emergency Service Unit. His duties there included liaison to military special operations units and as counter-terrorism instructor. Glenn holds a Master of Aeronautical Science Degree from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University with specialisation in Aviation/Aerospace Safety Systems and Operations. In 1993 he was assigned to the Aviation Unit in the rank of Sergeant as a Pilot/Operations Supervisor. In 2000 he was promoted to Lieutenant and continued to serve in the Aviation Unit performing the duties of SAR Pilot, Instructor Pilot and Platoon Commander until his retirement in 2004. From 2000 until 2008 he held the position of Northeast Director for the Airborne Law Enforcement Association responsible for the Northeast US and Europe and that brought him into contact with those in the region in what was to evolve into the event we now know as PAvCon. glenn@pavconeurope.eu
BILL PROBETS Sergeant/Chief Pilot [Ret] Bill has been speaking at PAvCon Europe for the last few years with his own brand of the ‘Undercover American.’ He was a police officer in England for 9 years but his desire to fly led him, via several years as a commercial helicopter pilot, to law enforcement aviation in California as a sworn, public safety pilot. This year he will take the audience deep into the thought processes a crew member experiences while hurtling towards the earth during a critical mechanical failure. “Seventeen seconds”, or, how long his nighttime engine failure took to unfold is a compelling narrative with many CRM, ADM and FRAT messages for all crewmembers. Bill recently retired as Chief Pilot and Unit Executive Officer of the East Bay Regional Park District in northern California but continues as Lead Accreditation Assessor for the Airborne Public Safety Accreditation Commission. He has conducted in depth reviews of many city, county, state and federal aviation programs in the USA and the Middle East. Bill holds an FAA ATP-H, CPL-A (S/E & M/E), CFI (NVG), and CFII, as well as UK CAA ATPL-H. He has almost 10,000 flight hours as Pilot in Command in single and multi-engine helicopters and fixed wing aircraft in a variety of operating environments. Mission experience includes pilot flight and crew training, offshore oil and gas operations, law enforcement, counter narcotics, surveillance, wild-land fire suppression and remote scene aeromedical operations. bill@pavconeurope.eu

In 1993 he joined the Belgium Gendarmerie to help start-up an ir Support Unit based at Brussels Airport employed as an observer. The unit later became part of the Federal Police. Through the next 27 years he was part of the team that inducted a range of new aircraft and EO/IR sensor systems into the fleet. In 2020 he retired from the police air unit after flying 7,000 operational hours in a range of aircraft, mainly helicopters, but also including fixed wing and even a Zeppelin airship. He also worked freelance in work for the broadcasting industry and acted as tutor in effective law enforcement use of EO/IR gimbals in Slovenia, Australia, Algeria, Slovenia, South America, UK and the USA. He specialises in the use of EO/IR gimbals and the search for missing persons with a helicopter. In 2015 he got also his professional Drone License as a pilot but also as a drone builder and maintainer. He still teaches on a freelance basis worldwide. luc@pavconeurope.eu if you want to reach him for information
Tony COWAN Regular readers of Police Aviation News will be familiar with Tony and his regular overviews on the illegal Migrant traffic, the modern boat people, making their way from France to England. In his PAvCon presentation he hopes to give a broader view of the world problem and how aircraft are being used to track, if not deter, this costly traffic and its detrimental effect on migrant, traffickers and politicians alike. The author, a former Royal Air Force senior officer, completed 41 years of military service, including 12 years in the RAF Volunteer Reserve. In the RAF he flew the BAe Nimrod, the ‘Mighty Hunter’ across oceans and seas for 10 years.

PAvCon Europe 2024 Event Guide
Principles The role of PAvCon Europe is to cover the financial aspects of supporting the event as these are a known difficulty for the police of all European nations. To bring together speakers from across the world [mainly US and Europe] fly them to the event and provide accommodation. PAvCon Europe identifies a location, often police/government hangars, and arrange sufficient tables, chairs, electricity and food and then offer industry the option to buy sell ing/demonstration space. There is no cost to attending police [airborne emergency services]. They transport themselves to the location and arrange and pay for their hotel. Often the only food they need to pay for is breakfast and some evening meals. PAvCon Europe will endeavor to supply maximum support to all attendees. In the case of the ‘financially challenged’ nations, mainly those in the east, PAvCon Europe will try to offer a few free hotel rooms to junior police staff attending.
Conference Aims This year the event retainins the two-day conference/exhibition format and will focus on crew training and technology information. An exclusive police training day will take place on Monday 28 May at the Hilton Garden Inn hotel, Wiener Nuestadt. The most important part remains that PAvCon Europe provides an opportunity for officers of all airborne law enforcement ranks to meet officers from other countries and cultures informally and to see and understand the new technology industry is offering.
A guiding principle is that the PAvCon Europe Event is primarily aimed at industry interacting with operational officers and those with direct purchasing/decision making roles
The event seeks to attract more junior officerswith the potential for a long career in police aviation to better serve the advancement of the industry as a whole.
Exhibitor Set Up The exhibition will be primarily focussed on the use of pop-up and table top displays. Set up will be from 1600hrs on the afternoon of Monday May 27, 2024 with exhibitors removing their displays from 1530, with the event concluding at 1700hrs on Wednesday June 8. A basic 1.5m long table and chair will be supplied to each exhibiting position, attending exhibitors will need to bring cloth coverings and ensure their own electrical connections by means of PAT tested extension leads. We offer power access but do not guarantee that it will be alongside the table.
Logistic Support This year we are offering Premier Showfreight Limited as the primary freight forwarder, Customs Broker & On-Site Handling Contractor. Premier Showfreight is based at Unit 7, Valley Point Industrial Estate, Beddington Farm Road, CROYDON, CR0 4WP . See separate document. For exhibitors from non-EU countries please be aware that you will need a CARNET ATA for shipment and customs.
IT Support Our long standing IT suppliers, Dynamic Range Ltd., can supply audio visual services and equipment including power cables and monitors and provide on-site support to their own equipment. As these have to be transported to the site you will need to contact them and agree both your needs and a price at least 14 days prior to the event. Dynamic Range Unit 4 North End Trading Estate Erith Kent DA8 3PP United Kingdom Speak to Steve McNair +44 (0)7834 628993 steve@dynamicrange.co.uk www.dynamicrange.co.uk This is not an exclusive arrangement, you may source this equipment and its on site technical support from your own suppliers bearing in mind any potential health, security access difficulties that may still prevail in May 2024.
The event to be held by PAvCon Europe in the hangar of Airborne Technologies GmbH, Viktor-Lang- Straße 8, 2700 Wiener Neustadt, Austria on 28-29 May 2024 It is planned to hold a one day training event off site in a hotel on Monday 27 May 2024. This is also the day when exhibitors arrive at Viktor-Lang -Straße to deliver and set up their displays. The tables and power will be set up for 12 noon that day. Full dates when it is expected that international travel delegates may be present in area and using hotel rooms are Saturday 25 May 2024 to Saturday 1 June 2024. International delegates tend to stay in the area before and after the event, the pre-arranged hotel rates reflect that.
TRAVEL TO THE EVENT The nearest airport is Vienna International Airport, 65km/26 miles from Wiener Neustadt. Travel from Vienna International Airport, to Wiener Neustadt is via S Autobahn/E59 a road journey expected to take 45 minutes. Taking the train is nearly as fast with a 55 minute direct journey time to Wiener Neustadt Hbf but these direct trains are significantly less frequent and at a cost of around €20 more expensive than other options. Combining the use of a bus or train [Rj Rjx] from the airport to Vienna Hbf €12 single followed by a train into Wiener Neustadt Hbf is cheaper and the service is every 30 minutes. Actual prices depend on the Vienna to Wiener Neustadt Hbf service selected. Be aware that if you take a taxi from the airport cab rank to Wiener Neustadt it will cost around €160. This is partly due to an airport tax. If you arrange to be picked up using taxis arranged through the Hilton Garden Hotel, Airborne Technologies or on- line you can expect to cut that cost significantly. GA aircraft and demonstration aircraft are welcome to fly into the host airport on a prior permission basis, 0900 to dusk—details on application. There are no customs facilities so a landing at Vienna may be required before flying to WN
