The flying in the wet season seminar is back – Wednesday 20 October from 7.30pm at the Mercure Darwin Airport Resort.

Places are limited so please register your free spot now via Eventbrite.

If you’re a pilot flying in the Top End of Australia, you don’t want to miss this opportunity.

You’ll learn to make better and more rational decisions when managing the many hazards associated with wet season flying.

This year we focus on a new case study – the examination of an incident involving a Cessna 210.

Hear directly from senior Australian Safety Transport Bureau investigator Peter Ayre, who analysed the factors behind this incident. You’ll find out his key aviation safety message from the analysis.

Other guest presenters include:

  • Captain Ian Silvester, Airnorth training and checking pilot. With more than 20 years of experience flying in the Top End, Ian’s operated small VFR aircraft, Embraer Brasilia, and E-Jet types.
  • Harry Burns-Fabb, Bureau of Meteorology (BoM). An aviation weather forecaster with years of experience up north, his personal interests include monsoonal activity and the challenges in predicting the weather in this dynamic environment.
  • Squadron Leader James (Jimmy) Lee, Darwin Air Traffic Control. Jimmy is currently operations commander and check controller in approach.
