AvSafety seminars for Pilots and Engineers

March 2020

Enhancing pilot – Expect the unexpected

In 2020, CASA’s Aviation Safety Advisors (ASAs) are running a series of AvSafety seminars—Enhancing pilot skills—Expect the unexpected.

This seminar will explore three key safety topics:

  • pre-flight planning
  • aeronautical decision making
  • checklists.

The seminar will discuss how sound planning practices can prepare pilots for unexpected events and assist decision making in all phases of flight. The seminar will review the resources available and provide practical hints and tips to help pilots operate safely and efficiently. The information is designed to enhance and refresh pilot’s knowledge at all levels.

Using practical examples, the seminar will also explore the role of checklists and highlight the importance of a disciplined approach to their use.

The seminars are an ideal opportunity for you to interact with your ASA, discuss local issues and ask questions of the regulator.

Engineering – The Human Component

The Engineering AvSafety Seminar titled The Human Component will discuss three key topics:

  • engineering errors and the lessons learnt
  • the human component of engineering
  • proposed GA maintenance and CAW regulations.

By using various case studies, the seminar will delve into engineering errors, the lessons learnt and techniques for avoiding pitfalls. We will explore the human component and cost factor involved in maintenance error. This seminar will also discuss the proposed GA maintenance regulations for private and air work operations.

Your Aviation Safety Advisor will be available for discussion and questions, both during and after the presentation if required.
