Moree pilots urged to attend air safety briefing

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

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) is holding the AvSafety seminar, 'Enhancing pilot skills - Expect the unexpected', in Moree on Thursday, July 25 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' and 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 said 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 said.

The Moree aviation safety seminar is being held on Thursday, July 25 at 6.30pm at the Moree Aero Club. People attending are asked to book online at the CASA website.
