CASA Delivers Safety Seminars for Pilots and Engineers

Reading Time: 2 minutes

CASA Aviation Safety Advisors are delivering a series of AvSafety seminars – Aviation Safety – Lessons for Life in 2016

Pilot Seminars

Aviation Safety – Lessons Learnt

The seminar will cover a variety of topics with the main themes for this series being ‘Avoiding flight in low visibility’ and ‘The dangers of unplanned or unapproved low flying’.

By using case studies from ATSB investigations, our Aviation Safety Advisors will help seminar attendees extract crucial lessons to assist in making better flying decisions.

As well as the main themes, this round of seminars will also provide an update on the Regulatory Reform process, a reminder of the correct procedures to use at Non Controlled Aerodromes, an update on the Airservices Navigation Aid Rationalisation Program and a refresher on the pilot’s responsibilities with respect to checking and completing a maintenance release.

The seminars are an opportunity for industry to interact with CASA, discuss local issues and ask questions of the regulator.
