Protecting and advancing Australia's aviation safety standards and operations
The flight deck itself is seen as a safe place, provided appropriate hygienic measures are taken.
The Safety and Technical (S&T) Team continues to participate in many forums and undertake
activities to ensure that high safety standards are maintained in Australia and, through IFALPA,
globally. The following is a brief outline of some of the current issues with which your Safety and Technical Committee has been engaged.
AusALPA is an umbrella Association that was formed in 1997 after a decision was
made for AIPA to join the Australian Federation of Air Pilots (AFAP) to form a single Australian
delegation to the International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA).
A go around is an important control to prevent aviation accidents during the critical approach and landing phase
of flight. Understanding the precursors to go around, including those associated with unstable approaches, can reveal important insight on the key safety threats and risks that pilots may face when operating into an airport.
