Keeping Esperance skies safe
Esperance pilots are being called on to take part in an important aviation safety briefing next week to keep local skies safe.
The briefing will focus on key safety issues which can put the lives of local pilots at risk when flying.
Issues in the spotlight include weather forecasts and a review of accidents and incidents.
Local pilots will look at previous accidents and incidents to learn valuable lessons to keep themselves safe in the sky.
The briefing will also provide an update on new regulations, a reminder about the correct procedures to use at non controlled aerodromes and information on using personal electronic devices while flying.
In addition, the briefing is a chance for pilots to give feedback and suggestions to CASA.
CASA’s Peter Gibson says the briefing for Esperance 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 Esperance aviation safety briefing is being held on Friday 19 May 2017 at 6:30pm at the Esperance Aero Club. Free pizza will be served from 6pm.
People attending are asked to book online.
