Coming up this winter in Flight Safety Australia


Flight Safety Australia’s team of local and international contributors have plenty in store for you this winter.

This week we will analyse the impact of the COVID-19 event on aviation and some of the safety considerations as we emerge from the crisis.

Also, this winter we examine how readers can learn from the habits of highly effective pilots. These are the aviators who, day in and day out, do things right—practices and attitudes that seem to support mishap-free flying.

We ask how a pilot can find vital pre-flight information when it’s buried deep in a stream of NOTAMs. This frustration, felt by pilots around the world, is finally being addressed—but don’t expect change anytime soon.

Contributor Kreisha Ballantyne makes no secret of the fact that she was an ill-equipped student pilot. How did she overcome this hurdle? You’ll be interested to read her steps towards the ‘Art of organisation’.

We pose this question: How old is too old to learn to fly? And as our pilot population ages and the recreational sector continues to grow, are the differing needs of older pilots being met by standard training?

Look forward to testing your knowledge with flying ops, maintenance and IFR quizzes and keep an eye out for drama in ‘close calls’.

Don’t forget Flight Safety Australia wants to hear about your close calls. If we publish your story, you will receive $500. Articles should be between 450 and 1400 words. Submit yours today by emailing
