Northern Territory pilots to reach new heights
Date of publication:
21 August 2018
Northern Territory pilots can lift their safety skills to new heights at free aviation seminars next week.
These new seminars will focus on defensive flying to make the NTs skies even safer.
All local pilots are invited to take part in the safety seminars being run by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority at Darwin and Katherine.
There will be a focus on threat and error management skills for pilots, as well as communication and situational awareness.
Threats to safe flying can be adverse weather, mechanical problems or other air traffic. Errors by pilots can be fuel mis-management, incorrect aircraft settings or navigation mistakes.
CASA’s Peter Gibson said local pilots will be given practical examples of how to fly defensively to best manage threats and errors.
“NT pilots can be leaders in aviation safety by attending next week’s seminars,” Mr Gibson said.
“Local pilots have good technical flying skills and can now further enhance their safety performance.
“Our goal is safe skies for all.”
The Darwin safety seminar is being held on Tuesday 28 August 2018 at 7pm at the Mercure Darwin Airport.
The Katherine seminar is being held on Wednesday 29 August at 7pm at the Ibis Styles Katherine.
People attending are asked to book online at the AvSafety seminars schedule.
