CASA this week announced a new series of aviation safety forums to be staged around the country this year.

Called FlySafe, the free forums are intended to engage the aviation community on a number of issues and will include speakers from CASA, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, the Bureau of Meteorology, the Department of Defence and the aviation industry.

The first FlySafe is scheduled for Hisense Stadium in Adelaide on 12 May and will cover several topical subjects including:

  • how the Office of Airspace Regulation functions
  • new maintenance regulations
  • the transition to the new operating regulations
  • safety management systems
  • new processes to achieve consistency.

As the FlySafe forums are public gatherings, CASA will be keeping local COVID rules in mind.

We’ll be following state and territory guidelines and working closely with the venues to provide sensible precautions such as arranging seating to give extra space and making hand sanitiser available," a CASA spokesperson said.

"If you’re unwell with a cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms, we ask you to please not attend. If you have recently travelled internationally, we would also appreciate if you could review and follow any Department of Health advice relevant to you."

Further FlySafe forums have been planned for Darwin on 22 June, Brisbane on 31 August and Melbourne on 12 October.

More information including the registration procedure is available on the CASA website.
