Geraldton pilots are being called on to take part in a special aviation safety briefing next week to keep local skies safe.
The free Geraldton aviation safety briefing will be held on Thursday 27 April 2017 at 6:30 pm at Kelmac Aviation.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority(CASA) says the briefing will focus on key safety issues which can put the lives of local pilots at risk when flying. These include fuel management and the handling of partial power loss in single engine aircraft.
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 says the briefing for Geraldton pilots is part of a national aviation safety campaign.
“Teaching local pilots aviation lessons for life is a high priority for CASA, ” M. Gibson says.
People attending are asked to book online at the CASA website.
