Mt Gambier pilots to learn lessons for life

Date of publication: 
10 March 2016

Mt Gambier pilots will learn aviation lessons for life at a local safety briefing next week.

The briefing will focus on key safety issues that continue to put the lives of pilots at risk when flying.

Safety issues covered will include flights in low visibility and the dangers of unplanned or unapproved low flying.

These two circumstances contribute to a number of serious accidents and incidents every year.

Local pilots will be asked to look at why these types of accidents or incidents occur and how they can be avoided.

Each seminar also provides a chance for pilots to give feedback and suggestions to CASA.

CASA’s Peter Gibson says the briefing for Mt Gambier 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 Mt Gambier aviation safety briefing is being held on Wednesday 16 March 2016 at 6:30pm at the Mt Gambier Aero Club.

People attending are asked to book online at the CASA website.
