The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) are holding AvSafety seminars which are an ideal opportunity for industry to interact with CASA, discuss local issues and ask questions of the regulator.

The AvSafety seminar titled ‘Enhancing pilot skills – Expect the unexpected‘ will discuss three key safety topics:

  • preflight 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 pilots 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.

These are being held around Queensland in late 2019 and early 2020, including the following dates:

Further QLD seminars will be held from 29 January 2020 with details to be confirmed, click here for more information.

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.

QLD dates will include Rockhampton and Maryborough from March 2020, details to be confirmed. Click here for more information.
