Geelong region pilots to learn aviation lessons for life

Date of publication: 
7 April 2016

Pilots in the Geelong region will learn aviation lessons for life at a local safety briefing next week.

The briefing at Lethbridge airfield will focus on key safety issues that continue to put the lives of pilots at risk when flying.

Safety issues covered will include flights in low visibility and the dangers of unplanned or unapproved low flying.

These two circumstances contribute to a number of serious accidents and incidents every year.

Local pilots will be asked to look at why these types of accidents or incidents occur and how they can be avoided.

Each seminar also provides a chance for pilots to give feedback and suggestions to CASA.

CASA’s Peter Gibson says the briefing for Geelong region pilots is part of a national aviation safety campaign.

“Teaching local pilots aviation lessons for life is a high priority for CASA” Mr Gibson says.

The free aviation safety briefing is being held at Lethbridge airfield in the Geelong Sports Aviators Club on Wednesday 13 April 2016 at 7pm.

People attending are asked to book online at the CASA website.
