The theme of the Summer edition of Flight Safety Australia is how to have a safe and enjoyable return to GA flying as pandemic restrictions gradually ease. Our writers discuss how pilots can prepare for that long-overdue trip to the Outback and deal with hot and humid conditions.
Another feature highlights how the Australian Transport Safety Bureau is unlocking the valuable information stored in cameras, phones and digital avionics to report on aircraft crashes that would otherwise have been mysterious. For instance, the night-time disappearance of a Bell UH-1 ‘Huey’ helicopter into the sea off Newcastle in September last year—the combination of data from ADS-B, and an iPhone and iPad on the aircraft, meant the aircraft’s flight path was known with reasonable accuracy within days.
In the ever-popular close calls, a GA pilot crossing the Nullabor decides not to turn around as the cloud base lowers. He has to descend to 200 feet AGL—at night. ‘It was so dark I couldn’t even see the propeller spinning … by now we were really scared,’ he recalls.
