Aviation safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Civil Aviation Safety Authority
|Date issued:||04 May 2004|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that CASA develop formal advisory material for pilots, based on relevant research and publications, about collision risk management strategies. This formal guidance material should include, but not necessarily be limited to, information on visual scanning techniques, situations where visual scanning is most important, other techniques to increase the likelihood of detecting other aircraft, types of spectacles and sunglasses best suited for aviation tasks, and collision avoidance manoeuvres.
