AvSafety seminars for pilots and engineers

September 2019

Enhancing pilot – Expect the unexpected

In 2019, CASA's Aviation Safety Advisors (ASAs) will run a new series of AvSafety seminars—Enhancing pilot skillsExpect the unexpected.

This seminar will explore three key safety topics:

  • preflight planning
  • aeronautical decision making.

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.

  • 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
