Jetstream 22 – Green Skies Ahead
Royal Aeronautical Society, London

On 14 June 2022, Global Aerospace hosted over 85 clients and their brokers for our biennial Jetstream seminar held at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London. Rachel Barrie, Global’s Group CEO opened the seminar and introduced Conor McCarthy, CEO of Emerald Airlines, who gave a presentation on aviation growth and environmental sustainability and whether the two goals are mutually compatible.

Conor was followed by Grazia Vittadini, Chief Technology and Strategy Officer at Rolls-Royce, who gave an incredible keynote speech titled “The Power That Matters: Pioneering Sustainable Aviation.”

Following on from Grazia, Dominic Jackson from Vertical Aerospace gave a presentation on Advanced Air Mobility and the confluence of technologies making that possible. James McMicking from ZeroAvia, a British/American hydrogen-electric aircraft developer, presented “Making Hydrogen Aviation Happen.”

After a networking lunch with our clients and their brokers, held on the sunny terrace of the Royal Aeronautical Society, Barry Moss, Co-Chair of PACE-ESG (The Platform for Analysing Carbon Emissions) delivered a presentation on Tracking Aircraft Emissions in Real-time.

We were then delighted to have Helen Sharman, CMG OBE, the first British astronaut join us for her presentation ‘More Space Please – A Personal View of Future Opportunities in Space.”  Helen also shared fascinating stories around her experiences in space.

Our last speaker of the day was Daniel Ridlon, Partner at Perkins Coie LLP, who gave a presentation on Product Liability Risks for New and Emerging Technologies.

Finally, Nick Methven, Underwriting Director at Global Aerospace, wrapped up the seminar by summarising the highlights of the day and thanking our attendees and presenters for their contribution to a fantastic event!
