As the days get longer and the weather improves we look hopefully to the start of the General Aviation flying season. EASA has joined forces with National Authorities across Europe as well as associations and clubs to launch the “Be Ready – Fly Safely Campaign” as a community initiative to help pilots, mechanics, flying club managers and everyone else interested in GA talk about how we can prepare for the months ahead and continue positive discussions to improve safety.
There will be a range of sessions during the course of the 2 weeks covering different stakeholder groups. Join the sessions and discussions. A list of all of the online events taking place is listed below. For further information and to register for these free events please click here.
