Safe skies in bad weather is the focus of a special safety seminar for Parkes pilots next week.

Parkes pilots will learn how to make the right decisions when the weather turns against them.

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority is holding the seminar as part of a campaign reduce weather related accidents.

CASA’s Peter Gibson says correct decision making by pilots is crucial.

“Accidents continue to happen when pilots flying visually get into deteriorating weather,” Mr Gibson says.

“Local pilots will learn more about how to assess weather before and during flight, how to plan for weather and how to make good decisions.

“All pilots receive training on weather related safety but ongoing education in this vital area is essential.”

The Parkes aviation safety seminar is being held on Tuesday 17 November 2020 at 6pm at the Parkes Aero Club.

Bookings are essential to allow COVID-19 requirements to be met.
