Close calls booklet - Sport aviation special 2019
Date of publication:
1 May 2019
This is our fourth Close calls sport aviation special, and once again members of the sport aviation community have been prepared to share their experiences, regardless of possible embarrassment, to promote openness and safety. As in previous years, there are stories and confessions from high-profile, even renowned, sport aviators. Reporting rates in sport aviation organisations continue to improve significantly, getting the message out that it’s not about finger pointing, but about fostering a better safety culture.
These are real-life stories, sent to us in the hope that others will learn from these experiences. They work on the theory that you should 'learn from the mistakes of others, because you can’t live long enough to make them all yourself!'
Another way to learn about human error and inoculate yourself against the worst of it is CASA’s new, revised and updated Safety behaviours: human factors for pilots resource kit, which was launched at Avalon airshow in March 2019.
The kit includes a workbook, ten booklets covering a range of topics with practical exercises, discussion areas and reference material, and a suite of new videos containing interviews with industry experts and practitioners.
It is suited for sport aviation, flying schools, students, general aviation pilots or simply anyone who wants to learn and develop these essential skills.
