An Insider's Perspective with Bill Kunik

Keynote - Tuesday, October 6, 9 - 9:30 a.m.
Live Q&A - Tuesday, October 6, 1:10 - 1:30 p.m.

As the original equipment manufacturer of the Angle of Attack sensor that caused the Lion Air and Ethiopia Air fatal accidents, Bill Kunik led a team supporting both Boeing 737Max aircraft accident investigations. While investigating these highly visible tragedies, his team had to sidestep internal management oversight and significant media exposure to develop a fact-based root cause to support independent investigators in America and Indonesia.
