Tasmanian Pilots Are Being Urged Not To Push The Safety Envelope

A new safety education campaign by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority puts the spotlight on the many pressures placed on pilots when contemplating, planning and conducting a flight.

At a seminar next week, pilots will learn about not flying beyond the edges of their personal limits. 

This is vital as around 80 per cent of aviation accidents can be linked to mistakes, errors or incorrect judgement. 

CASA’s Tim Penney says the seminar will give pilots of all levels, extra education in key safety areas. 

“Tasmanian pilots have comprehensive safety training and this campaign provides even more knowledge about how to prevent accidents and incidents,” Tim Penney says. 

“We will focus on issues such as fatigue, distractions and loss of situational awareness. 

“Lessons from past accidents and incidents will be highlighted.” 

The seminar is also a great chance for pilots to raise any local safety issues and ask questions about rules and regulations. 

The Devonport aviation safety seminar is being held on Tuesday 29 March 2022 at 6:00 pm at Quality Hotel Gateway.

The Hobart aviation safety seminar is being held on Thursday 31 March 2022 at 6:00 pm at RACV Apartment Hotel.

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