Aviation safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Civil Aviation Safety Authority
|Date issued:||13 January 2004|
|Safety action status:|
Limitations of the See-and-Avoid Principle
The CAA should ensure that pilots are aware of the physiological
and psychological limitations of the visual system.
Note: The Recommendation was issued to the [then] Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in 1991.
|Date issued:||29 April 1998|
|Response from:||Civil Aviation Safety Authority|
|Action status:||Closed - Accepted|
CASA agrees with both the above recommendations. However CASA believes that the limitations have been promoted to the extent that benefits of the visual system may have become seriously discounted. As a consequence, CASA will continue to emphasise the requirement to be vigilant.
