New scholarship launched for aviation safety managers


Anybody with a passion for aviation knows that safety is as important to the industry as oxygen is to breathing.

So, superlatives aside, CASA is launching a fantastic new scholarship initiative for aviation safety managers.

Three scholarships – worth up to $5,000 each – are on offer to safety managers who are committed to the development of a healthy aviation safety culture within their organisation.

CASA’s Chief Executive Officer and Director of Aviation Safety, Pip Spence, says the new scholarships will provide practical encouragement for people interested in a career in aviation safety.

‘Safety managers play an important role in maintaining the level of safety that the travelling public, regulators and the industry have come to expect,’ Ms Spence says.

‘We encourage those who are committed to the development of a healthy aviation safety culture, who use their initiative, and display a high standard of aptitude and leadership, to apply.

‘As we continue to support the aviation community to move past the shutdown of the industry post COVID-19, we believe this is a great opportunity to help the successful individuals enhance their aviation safety expertise within their organisations.’

The scholarships are aimed at those who are currently in or have previously held a key aviation safety position. Applicants will also require a minimum of 2 years in the industry.
