Civil Aviation Safety Authority hosting special briefing for Upper Hunter pilots

AN important safety briefing for local pilots will take place in Scone next week.

The seminar, being delivered by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), is focusing on pilot pre-flight and in-flight decision making, flying within personal limits and hazards during landing.

The local contingent will learn lessons from past accidents and incidents to make the skies even safer.

Pilots will be encouraged to share their own good and bad flying experiences, too.

It is also a great opportunity for local pilots to give feedback and suggestions to CASA and to catch up with their colleagues.

CASA’s Peter Gibson says the briefing for Scone pilots is part of a national aviation safety campaign.

“Getting pilots to think and talk about aviation safety issues is the key aim of the briefing,” he said.

“This is not just CASA talking but an important chance to share safety knowledge and experiences.”

The free Scone aviation safety briefing will occur at the Scone Aero Club on Tuesday, June 19, at 6pm.

People attending are asked to book online at the CASA website.
