The conference is a great opportunity to gather as many as possible of the key personnel within the airline industry, so they can meet, get to know each other, and exchange experiences in an informal environment. The Committee endeavors to facilitate for Norwegian and International specialists to share their experiences through high-quality presentations. Their first Conference was arranged in 1985, making FoF-Norway the oldest Norwegian Aviation Conference. The conference is open for everybody, including the press.
