Prague Castle hosted CEPA EXPO, a conference of private air carriers, on 19-20 November 2014. The Central Europe Private Aviation (CEPA) organisation invited to the Rudolph Gallery everyone who is interested in the private aviation business in Central and Eastern Europe. CzechInvest was a partner of the event.

The conference programme included talks on the topics of safety, current changes in regulations, the latest technologies and differences in insurance between western and eastern countries. An important part of the discussions at this year’s event was the ongoing unrest in Ukraine and related tensions in Eastern Europe.

In his opening remarks, Deputy Minister of Transport Kamil Rudolecký stated that it is possible to resolve the situation through dialogue. Other Czech speakers at the event included Jiří Pos, a member of the board of directors of Český aeroholding, and Petr Vávra of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
