Making Central Australian skies safer
Date of publication:
8 May 2018
Important safety briefings for local pilots are being held in Alice Springs and Yulara next week.
All local pilots are urged to attend the briefings which are being delivered by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.
Central Australian pilots will learn lessons from past accidents and incidents to make local skies even safer.
The briefings will focus on pilot pre-flight and in-flight decision making, flying within personal limits and hazards during landing.
Pilots will be encouraged to share their own good and bad flying experiences and any lessons they have learned.
It is also a great opportunity for local pilots to give feedback and suggestions to CASA and to catch up with their colleagues.
CASA’s Peter Gibson says the briefings for Central Australian pilots are part of a national aviation safety campaign.
“Getting pilots to think and talk about aviation safety issues is the key aim of the briefings,” Mr Gibson says.
“This is not just CASA talking but an important chance to share safety knowledge and experiences.”
The free Central Australian aviation safety briefings are being held at:
- Alice Springs on Wednesday 16 May 2018 at 6:30pm at the Royal Flying Doctor Service
- Yulara on Thursday 17 May 2018 at 7pm at the Yulara Lions Club.
People attending are asked to book online at the AvSafety seminars schedule.
