About AEEC General Session

One Great Venue, Two Conferences. 

Each year, the Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC) General Session and Avionics Maintenance Committee (AMC) Conference join together in one location to bring together industry experts from around the world. The AEEC General Session and AMC Conference function simultaneously, providing opportunities to explore common issues and advancements in the industry through discussion and technical symposiums, and direct focus on the advancement of technical standards and committee and working group activities under the auspices of the AEEC and AMC. 

The AEEC General Session is an important event on the AEEC calendar. The AEEC General Session marks the culmination of the years' standards development work. New ARINC Standards are discussed and approved at this meeting. Furthermore, the AEEC initiates the work program and schedule for the coming year. The AEEC General Session is an ideal opportunity for aviation industry professionals to obtain an overview of the important technical developments in air transport avionics and other aircraft electronics.
