PILOTS have a chance to improve their safety and flying skills during a special workshop in Warrnambool next week.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) will run the event for pilots of all ages and experience.
Topics will include avoiding airspace infringements, flying at aerodromes without air traffic control towers, using electronic flight bags and new navigation requirements.
Pilots will also be given information on CASA’s program of spot checks on pilots before flights, special online education tools and new regulations.
CASA’s aviation safety director John McCormick said the safety workshops were a central part of an ongoing drive to improve aviation safety.
“I encourage all local pilots to come along to this workshop because it is not only an opportunity to learn, but to ask questions and provide feedback,” Mr McCormick said.
The Warrnambool event will be held on Thursday, June 26 at 6pm at the Lady Bay Resort.
People attending are asked to book online using AviationWorx on the CASA website: www.casa.gov.au/avsafety
