Safety Evenings 2018/19

Booking requests are now being taken  in the GASCo Office for the 2018/19 Season which starts on 1st October. The presentation addresses maintaining situational awareness, the use of threat and error management to prevent loss of control accidents, mid-air collisions and airspace infringements. All of this will be served up by the GASCo Regional Safety Officers in a non-preaching manner accompanied by the usual thought provoking facts and figures interspersed with relevant video clips. In addition to the traditional pack of information – which will contain among other things a printed copy of The Sky Way Code.

If you would like to host an evening (or afternoon) between 1st October 2018 and 30th April 2019, just telephone 01634 200203 or e-mail Penny and we’ll start the ball rolling.
