THE CITY’S airport will act as a classroom for pilots next week, when the Civil Aviation Safety Authority will hold a safety briefing.
Pilots from around the area are being asked to register their attendance to the free briefing, which will be held on Wednesday at the Armidale Aero Club.
The session will focus on key safety issues that continue to put the lives of pilots at risk when flying, the authority’s Peter Gibson said.
“Safety issues covered will include flights in low visibility and the dangers of unplanned or unapproved low flying,” he said.
“These two circumstances contribute to a number of serious accidents and incidents every year.
“Local pilots will be asked to look at why these types of accidents or incidents occur and how they can be avoided.”
Mr Gibson said there was no particular reason why Armidale was selected as a briefing location beyond the fact the city was “a major centre with a healthy local aviation community”. The sessions will be run using case studies from Australian Transport Safety Bureau investigations.
They will also provide an update on the regulatory reform process and a refresher on pilots’ responsibilities with respect to maintenance procedures.
“Teaching local pilots aviation lessons for life is a high priority for the Civil Aviation Safety Authority,” Mr Gibson said.
“Armidale pilots will learn aviation lessons for life.”
Each seminar also provides a chance for pilots to give feedback and suggestions to the authority.
The briefing in Armidale is part of a national aviation safety campaign, with sessions to being held throughout the country.
