Air safety briefing lands in Cowra

Cowra pilots are being urged to attend an important aviation safety briefing next week.

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority is holding the briefing in Cowra to keep local skies accident free.

Pilots will learn the latest in aviation safety, as well as refreshing their knowledge and training in key areas.

The theme of the briefing is 'expect the unexpected'.

To manage the unexpected pilots should focus on pre-flight planning, aeronautical decision making and checklists.

Accident and incident case studies will be worked through to show how planning, good decision making and the effective use of check lists can stop unexpected events becoming accidents.

CASA's Peter Gibson says the briefing offers something for pilots of all ages and skill levels.

"Local pilots have a high level of training and skills and this briefing will make them even safer aviators," Mr Gibson says.

The Cowra aviation safety seminar is being held on Wednesday, July 31 at 6pm at the Cowra Services Club.
