Normally at this time of year, the General Aviation Safety Council (GASCo) would be staging Safety Evenings at flying clubs all over the UK but the pandemic has put paid to that. Instead, GASCo is planning a series of webinars.
Called Safety Evening Webinars, they will last for 90 minutes and address current GA safety concerns. Visiting speakers join the team of GASCo Regional Safety Officers and a short Q&A session is included.
“We make the evening as interactive as practicable by taking audience polls as we go,” said a GASCo spokesperson.
“In addition to our GASCo Safety Evenings, we have more webinars in the pipeline addressing specific topics such as Staying in Control; Small Helicopter Safety; Sharpen up your Lookout; Airspace Infringements Awareness; Ditching & Sea Survival Theory; Threat and Error Management for GA Pilots; Setting Personal Limits and Understanding Weather in Europe.
“Some of our safety evening webinars are adapted to include more specialised content for glider pilots and balloonists and these are identified in the description.”
