Keeping Whitsunday skies safe
Date of publication:
15 March 2017
Whitsunday pilots are being called on to take part in a special 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 fuel management and the handling of partial power loss in single engine aircraft.
These two issues contribute to a number of serious accidents and incidents every year.
Local pilots will look at previous accidents and incidents involving fuel management and engine power loss 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 Whitsunday 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 Airlie Beach aviation safety briefing is being held on Thursday 23 March 2017 at 6:30pm at the Whitsunday Airport Terminal Building.
People attending are asked to book online at the CASA website.
