Making Parkes skies safer

Date of Publication: 
Tuesday 1st August

An important safety briefing for local pilots is being held in Parkes next week.

All local pilots are urged to attend the briefing which is being delivered by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.

Parkes pilots will learn lessons from past accidents and incidents to make local skies even safer.

The briefing 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 briefing for Parkes pilots is part of a national aviation safety campaign.

“Getting pilots to think and talk about aviation safety issues is the key aim of the briefing,” Mr Gibson says.

“This is not just CASA talking but a chance to share safety knowledge and experiences.”

The free Parkes aviation safety briefing is being held on Tuesday 8 August 2017 at 6pm at the Parkes Aero Club.

People attending are asked to book online at the AvSafety seminars schedule.
