On Friday 22nd March 2019 we welcomed regional safety officer Martin Benson from GASCo to Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club for the yearly safety evening.
This years focus was on situational awareness, the use of threat and error management to prevent loss of control accidents, mid-air collisions and airspace infringements.
The event was a great success with 50 people attending the event, some winning prizes and all visitors going away with the latest copy of the CAA Skyway code and some informative GASCo safety leaflets.
Some of the visitors to the event commented:
“I attended both SkyDemon and GASCo Events. I found that on each occasion, I had gained informative and useful knowledge. With regard to the GASCo event in particular, I wish to extend my sincere thanks to all involved who orchestrated this most valuable evening – I would highly recommend that all interested in flying attend this event.”
“Fantastic evening. Superb presenter, engaging and relevant. Learnt a lot and a lot to reflect on.”
We look forward to welcoming GASCo next year and also to seeing many of our members to further events later this year.
