GASCI Announce Four Safety Evenings in June

The General Aviation Safety Council of Ireland, a volunteer body made up of representatives from General Aviation in Ireland, has announced it will host four Safety Evenings in June in Dublin, Cork, Sligo and Limerick. The evenings are free to attend and everyone is welcome. This year, presenters from GASCo, the UK equivalent, will also be making presentations. The presentation addresses maintaining situational awareness, the use of threat and error management to prevent loss of control accidents, mid-air collisions and airspace infringements. All of this served up in a non-preaching manner accompanied by the usual thought provoking facts and figures interspersed with relevant video clips. The events details are as follows;

  • Saturday 1st June 2019 – Sligo – venue TBC 19:30
  • Monday 3rd June 2019 – Dublin – Clayton Hotel Leopardstown 19:30
  • Tuesday 4th June 2019 – Limerick – Greenhills Hotel 19:30
  • Wednesday 5th June 2019 – Cork – Airport Hotel 19:30
