Each year, the CAA goes on the road presenting more than 30 AvKiwi seminars around the country, promoting good safety attitudes.
In 2018, however, there will be no AvKiwi. The CAA’s Communications and Safety Promotion unit have been requested to put their resources towards helping get Group 2 operations to submit their Safety Management System implementation plans for approval by 30 July 2018.
But in 2019, AvKiwi will be back! So keep an eye out this time next year for the 2019 safety topic, dates, and places the seminars will be held.
The runway behind you,
The air above you,
and the fuel you left behind…
Whether you’re starving for new information, or too exhausted to find out the real gas, there’s more to fuel than you think.
A wise person once said, “mistakes are lessons”. That is never more true than in aviation.
Through accident investigation, the CAA and TAIC sift the causes of aircraft accidents and incidents. There are no new accidents – learn from those who have flown the paths before you.
Weather can be a puzzle – you’ve got all the pieces,
but how do you fit them together to create the right picture?
Accident investigations suggest that pilots who had weather related accidents didn’t understand the weather.
The 2015 seminar can help you navigate your way through the mass of information out there.
Are you ready to fly?
You’ve completed your planning, the aircraft is ready, but have you completed your Personal Preflight?
You would never fly an unsafe aircraft, but are you in top condition?
Situational awareness is the key to collision avoidance. Improving your situational awareness skills could save your life one day.
Simply put, situational awareness can be described as, “What was, what is, and what might be”.
The pilot priorities of Aviate - Navigate - Communicate are well-known. Plane Talking is all about the communicate part, and includes a Good Aviation Practice booklet, and a CAA Advisory Circular.
