“CAA Safety Link”

Unread post by jimdavis » Fri Feb 08, 2019 6:59 pm

I am trying to find out whether most pilots are aware of the CAA's online flight safety publication called “CAA Safety Link” .

Is it getting to its target audience? Do current pilots get it sent to them? Are people aware of its existence? Is it respected and relevant?

I would value any input on this.

IMHO the CAA have a closed minded tunnel vision of safety. Safety this, safety that...while on the sidelines everyone suffers.

Charter companies have been operating safely for decades. This sudden need for all these increased regs really makes me think of the term if it aint broke, dont fix it. What is actually happening is it aint broke, so lets break it.

I am a qualified Safety Manager, although I do not have it in my job description. The systems in place are overkill, expensive and slowly destroying operators while realy doing very little to reduce accidents. What is happening is people fly less because they cant comply. When they were flying more before these regs came into effect, we didnt exactly see alluminium showers :roll:

Sorry Jim, not my intention to hijack your thread :D

The reason that is ask is that it was the official recommendation of an accident report that the details be published in this publication so that we could all be reminded of the dangers of VFR into IMC.

As the 'publication' appears to be a secret the above recommendation is meaningless.

Please more feedback. Let me know whether you have, or have not, been subjected to this 'publication'.

unaware of it. I do visit their site regularly, mainly to check accident updates and see the updates on the homepage which happen quite often and has valuable info.

Used to receive it with the posted notams. Apollo alluded to trying to resurrect it with CAA without much luck. See: https://www.avcom.co.za/phpBB3/viewtopi ... &p=2010820
If ever in doubt about flying - drink a beer.
That will give you at least 8 hours to think about it some more.
