An en­gine fail­ure can spoil your day: stop it hap­pen­ing with the CAA’S sim­ple ad­vice on which fuel to use and which fuel to avoid

The CAA’S 2018 Post-sea­son Sym­po­sium will be held on 7-8 Novem­ber at the De­fence Acad­emy, Shriven­ham, near Swin­don. The ob­jec­tives of sym­po­sium are to pro­vide ‘iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of lessons learned, reg­u­la­tory feed­back, safety aware­ness, hu­man fac­tors train­ing, and a fo­rum for the dis­cus­sion of best prac­tice to all those in­volved in fly­ing dis­plays, both civil­ian and mil­i­tary,’ say the or­gan­is­ers. ‘The sym­po­sium pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for the dis­play com­mu­nity to share feed­back with both the civil­ian and mil­i­tary reg­u­la­tors, in ad­di­tion to shar­ing ideas so as to con­tin­u­ously im­prove the fly­ing dis­play en­vi­ron­ment.’

Day One of the Sym­po­sium, aimed at all par­tic­i­pants, will fo­cus on hu­man fac­tors train­ing and up­dates from reg­u­la­tors to in­clude reg­u­la­tory lessons iden­ti­fied and work to be con­ducted dur­ing the win­ter.

Day Two will be work­shop-based, al­low­ing dis­play pi­lots, fly­ing dis­play di­rec­tors, fly­ing con­trol com­mit­tee mem­bers and event or­gan­is­ers to dis­cuss and share ex­pe­ri­ences and is­sues that arose through­out the 2018 dis­play sea­son. There will also be a num­ber of break­out ses­sions al­low­ing at­ten­dees to meet with a broad range of the air dis­play sec­tor in or­der to learn, share lessons and as­sist in the main­te­nance of the safety of the sec­tor. At the end of the sym­po­sium, each work­shop will have the op­por­tu­nity to share lessons or best prac­tice with the wider fly­ing dis­play com­mu­nity and help in­form and pre­pare for the 2019 by high­light­ing lessons learned from this year.

All those in­volved in the plan­ning, ex­e­cu­tion and fly­ing at fly­ing dis­plays are en­cour­aged to at­tend. Civil­ian per­son­nel can ap­ply at: ap­ply.caa. co.uk/caa­por­tal/servlet/smart­form. html?form­code=sym Ap­pli­ca­tions close on 23 Oc­to­ber 2018.
