From aircraft hijackings in the 1970s to 9/11 and the mystery of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in 2014 to the latest destruction of EgyptAir Flight 804 in 2016, critical questions regarding the future outlook for aviation security continue to challenge the international community. While total safety in the skies cannot be achieved, are all the parties involved—government, industry, airlines, airports, and the public—motivated sufficiently to develop improved measures to reduce aerial human and technological risks? A panel of experts from the public and private sectors examined the challenges and opportunities in the aviation environment.
