An important safety briefing for local pilots was held at the Griffith Aero Club on Tuesday.
Around 25 local pilots attended, with main speaker Teraya Miller, from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
The briefing focused on pilot pre-flight and in-flight decision making, flying within personal limits and hazards during landing.
Aero Club member Peter Little said “nights like this are all about having fun and enjoying flying in a safe environment of which both new and older pilots get a lot of benefit from.”
Senior Flight Instructor from Griffith Aero Club said he was pleased with the turn out.
“There was a meeting around the same time last year and one the year before that, and they tackle a particular issue each time.”
CASA’s Peter Gibson says the briefing for Griffith pilots is part of a national aviation safety campaign, “getting pilots to think and talk about aviation safety issues.”
