Gympie pilots to reach new heights
Date of publication:
23 July 2018
Gympie pilots can lift their safety skills to new heights at a free aviation seminar next week.
This new seminar will focus on defensive flying to make Gympie skies even safer.
All local pilots are invited to take part in the safety seminar being run by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.
There will be a focus on threat and error management skills for pilots, as well as communication and situational awareness.
Threats to safe flying can be adverse weather, mechanical problems or other air traffic. Errors by pilots can be fuel mis-management, incorrect aircraft settings or navigation mistakes.
CASA’s Peter Gibson said local pilots will be given practical examples of how to fly defensively to best manage threats and errors.
"Gympie pilots can be leaders in aviation safety by attending next week’s seminar," Mr Gibson said.
"Local pilots have good technical flying skills and can now further enhance their safety performance.
"Our goal is safe skies for all."
The Gympie aviation safety seminar is being held on Tuesday 31 July 2018 at 6pm at the Gympie Aero Club.
People attending are asked to book online at the CASA website.
