Safety Action


Local Safety Action

In March 2003, as a result of this and other occurrences to aircraft on the ground, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority released a pilot education safety video titled 'Safety on the Ground'. Part of that video focussed on starting aircraft by hand and made the point that the procedure should not be used to start modern aircraft unless it was absolutely necessary. The video emphasised that only a suitably trained and competent person should attempt hand-swinging a propeller.
