All local pilots are being urged to attend a safety briefing with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority next week.

Forbes pilots will learn lessons from past accidents and incidents to make local skies even safer, according to the organisation’s press release.

The briefing will focus on pilot pre-flight and in-flight decision making, flying within personal limits and hazards during landing.

Pilots will be encouraged to share their own good and bad flying experiences and any lessons they have learned.

It is also a great opportunity for local pilots to give feedback and suggestions to CASA and to catch up with their colleagues.

CASA’s Peter Gibson says the briefing for Forbes pilots is part of a national aviation safety campaign.

“Getting pilots to think and talk about aviation safety issues is the key aim of the briefing,” Mr Gibson said.

“This is not just CASA talking but an important chance to share safety knowledge and experiences.”
