Port Lincoln pilots to learn lessons for life

Date of Publication: 
Wednesday 11th May

Port Lincoln pilots will learn aviation lessons for life at a local safety briefing this 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, pilot incapacitation and weather.

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 Port Lincoln 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 Port Lincoln aviation safety briefing is being held on Wednesday 11 May 2016 at 6:30pm at the Port Lincoln Flying Club.

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