Portugal Air Summit 3rd edition will take place at Ponte de Sor Airfield between the 30th may and 2nd June

The aeronautical sector is, par excellence, considered strategic for the most modern economic models and presents, nowadays, a serious flaw that relates to the lack of technical expertise, which constitutes a brake on the growth, like what has been happening in other primary industries.

Being human resources specialized in the Aeronautics area scarce in the world and in Portugal and having our country a strong aeronautical cluster representing more than 1.4% of GDP with high growth propensity and prominent role in job creation and in exports, it is essential to establish partnerships between businesses, academy and university students to focus on people and on their interpersonal skills.

The Portugal Air Summit gives space for a close collaboration based on the existence and promotion of specific domains and clear designs to create faster interaction dynamics in an embryonic phase for those who intend to persecute an Aeronautical Career. It promotes a professional integration in the aeronautical sector, contributing in an effective way for middle and higher-level jobs opportunity.

Language and interpretation of future employment has undergone a profound change in recent years and with only a straight proximity of business promotion and a sharing of experience enhanced by digital platforms, we can approach two poles that often seem to be in opposite directions. 

Portugal Air Summit third edition offers an amazing Air Show and the ARC, Air Race Championship. This unique and world class airplane race promises to attract massive crowds. 

Portugal Air Summit 2019 will gather once again the
industry´s leading entities and personalities to debate and analyze the Aviation and Aeronautics potential and future growth.

After the huge success of the two prior editions of Portugal Air Summit, where we had more than 150 speakers and more than 50.000 visitors, the Summit third Edition will take place at Ponte de Sor Municipal Airfield, between 30 May and 2 June, and will focus on the central theme "Powering Human Capital". 

This year the summit will focus on the human skills, labor market and advanced formation and will include conferences, presentations, exhibitions, workshops and showcases, as well as a networking lounge and exclusive meeting rooms for companies and thematic groups. The importance of research and development will also be addressed, not just from a sector evolution perspective, but also regarding job creation and qualified human resources.

The conference program is based on the most prominent subjects and the more relevant issues of the sector. Unmanned aerial vehicles, which today take on a relevant role, as well as commercial aviation, its future and its impact on a global world will be analyzed.

Portugal Air Summit seeks to promote on a national and international basis the Portuguese aviation sector, and as such establish Portugal as a major player on this industry international scene. It embraces once again the main goal of contributing to the corporate activity development in the field of manned and unmanned aviation.
