Aviation safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: AusSAR
|Date issued:||04 January 2000|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The Directorate of Flying Safety-ADF and the Bureau of Air Safety Investigation (ATSB) recommends that AusSAR develop a standard format for the in-flight retasking of search and rescue aircraft and ensure that all personnel involved in search and rescue operations are familiar with that format.
|Date issued:||03 May 2000|
|Action status:||Closed - Accepted|
AusSAR has introduced a standard "Amended SAR Briefing Form"
that can be faxed or e-mailed to an operator who is communicating
directly with an aircraft to be re-tasked in-flight. The form
ensures that the amended briefing is comprehensive and reduces the
prospects for transmission errors.
