Keep on flying: CASA will hold a safety briefing for pilots on Thursday.Keeping local pilots up to date with key safety issues is front and centre at a plannedCivil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) briefing.
The event is on Thursday.
President of the Hastings District Flying Club Rod Davison said the safety briefing is a regular event for pilots in the area.
“This is not a special event to the area. Local pilots would attend these safety briefings each year,” he said.
“While there was a briefing just under 12 months ago, they are still a good opportunity for local pilots to catch up on the latest updates.”
The briefings are designed to keep local skies safe.
This year’s briefingwill focus on key safety issues which can put the lives of local pilots at risk when flying.
Issues in the spotlight include fuel management and the handling of partial power loss in single engine aircraft.
These two issues contribute to a number of serious accidents and incidents every year.
Local pilots will look at previous accidents and incidents involving fuel management and engine power loss to learn valuable lessons to keep themselves safe in the sky.
The briefing will also provide an update on new regulations, a reminder about the correct procedures to use at non controlled aerodromes and information on using personal electronic devices while flying.
In addition, the briefing is a chance for pilots to give feedback and suggestions to CASA.
CASA’s Peter Gibson said the briefing for Port Macquarie pilots is part of a national aviation safety campaign.
“Teaching local pilots aviation lessons for life is a high priority for CASA,” Mr Gibson said.
The free Port Macquarie aviation safety briefing is being held on Thursday November 24, 2016 at 6pm at the Hastings District Flying Club.
People attending are asked to book online at the CASA website.
