In his presentation he will speak about the good and bad aspects of aviation industry from the perspective of Small Planet. As Vytautas Kaikaris states, this presentation will explore the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of aviation.

The current situation within the world of aviation is very optimistic, although there are a number of contradictions. The big players are buying out the small ones, challenges within aviation security are on the constant increase, and new areas of operation and regulation come into play as drones and commercial space flight become a reality. Much strategic thinking about the future of air transport needs to be accomplished as it predetermines the economy within the entire region. International Air Transport Association predicts that air travel will double within the next 20 years and freight air transport is already one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy within the European Union. What do aviation leaders think of such predictions?
