A New Remedy for Infringers

The CAA has announced a further possible option for action that could be taken against controlled airspace infringers. An infringer might be required to attend an infringement awareness course similar to a speed awareness course for drivers. The CAA has appointed GASCo as a provider of such a course and Mike O’Donoghue, Chief Executive of GASCo said, “We are told that the national speed awareness course used for drivers has proved very successful and so we looked at the key elements of a typical course and developed an engaging and educational version for pilots employing threat and error management techniques. The GA community has said that educating a pilot post an infringement is the way forward. With this course the CAA and GASCo will deliver a significant part of that work.”  See: www.caa.co.uk
