If you’re involved in aviation in Brisbane or Alice Springs, CASA encourages you to assist us directly in the development of our plan for the future of aviation safety regulation—Flight Plan 2030.
After the success of our previous forums in Western Australia and Launceston, the final two Flight Plan 2030 events for this year are an opportunity for the aviation community to discuss with CASA the issues and challenges facing aviation safety today, tomorrow and over the next 15 years.
CASA encourages people in recreational, general and commercial aviation to participate. Views are needed from pilots, engineers, air operators, ground personnel, remotely piloted aircraft operators and air traffic controllers.
CASA’s Director of Aviation Safety, Mark Skidmore, says every viewpoint will be heard and considered.
‘We need as many people as possible in aviation to take part in these forums so that CASA can develop the most effective plans for the future,’ Skidmore says.
‘All aviation knowledge does not reside in CASA and the people who make up the aviation community should have an opportunity to contribute to planning the future of aviation in Australia.
‘I strongly encourage everyone to attend a forum in their region to make sure their views and ideas are heard.’
Issues discussed at the forums will include the impact of new technology, how the growth in commercial remotely piloted aircraft affects traditional aviation and the challenges of ageing aircraft. Any ideas and comments made at the forums will aid in the development of Flight Plan 2030, scheduled for release in 2016.
The Brisbane event is on Thursday 26 November from 2pm to 5pm at the Kedron Wavell Services Club followed by the Alice Springs forum on Tuesday 1 December from 2pm to 5pm at the Chifley Alice Springs Resort. It is important to reserve your spot at the forums as soon as possible.
More information about the future forums is available via the CASA website.
