Video: New Airprox video released

The UK Airprox Board have produced a new video to highlight the threat of mid-air collisions. As part of their campaign to reduce the number of airprox incidents, they have published information on six themes from previous incidents that can help cut the risks if pilots apply them every time they fly. They are;

  • Eyes – The ins and outs of Lookout;
  • Ears – Why it’s good to Communicate;
  • Advertise – Be seen visually and use Electronic Conspicuity;
  • Insight – Think and plan ahead for Insight;
  • Prioritise – Time-share cockpit activity by Prioritising Tasks;
  • Foresight – Fly with courtesy and consideration at all times through Defensive Flying

More details are available from the UK Airprox Board website Click on the image below for a full size image.
