Thanks so much everyone - I have the info I need, basically that CAA forgot to publicise the online 'magazine'. In other words no one ever saw it.

The accident is incidental - it was three youngsters who flew into the Drakensberg - VFR into IMC in 2005. The only recommendation on the accident report was that it be publicised in "Safety Link". This was never done, but it would have made no difference if it had been done - because the publication was hidden on CAA's website, and, as demonstrated here, no one ever knew about it.

Another government project that was a complete waste of time and money.

Jim.

About the only time the CAA communicates with anyone is when they decide you are an unsafe entity and send you a mail withdrawing your flying privileges :roll:

You are right Nico. They are like CASA in Oz. They aimi for zero accidents by having zero flying.

Actually CASA put out a really excellent flight safety magazine - I will give them that!

BTW - it's good to know you have a name. :lol: You have a great day!
