Speaker: Captain Rick Clarke

Captain Clarke is Director of the Air Line Pilots Association's (ALPA) Safety Risk Management Project. He is a former U. S. Naval Aviator and squadron Commanding Officer, and worked as a safety consultant until 1990, when he began flying for a U. S. air carrier. Currently he flies the Boeing 737 on North American routes, and is rated in the Boeing 757, 767 and 777, the Convair 580 the Lockheed Constellation, and the Lear Jet. He holds a M.S. in Safety from the University of Southern California and is a former Treasurer and Executive Vice President of the System Safety Society. ALPA represents 64,000 commercial airline pilots at 44 air operators in Canada and the United States.

We hope to attract a good number of people to hear Captain Clarke speak…and to network with fellow system safety professionals from industry, academia and government.
