Workshop for Coffs Coast's pilots

A RANGE of procedures pilots use to fly at Coffs Harbour airport are about to change.

To help all pilots learn the new procedures a special aviation workshop is being held in Coffs Harbour next week.

The workshop is being run by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority to explain what the changes mean to operations at Coffs Harbour.

All local pilots are urged to attend the workshop, which is part of a comprehensive national training campaign on the new procedures.

The changes will be implemented for Class D airspace procedures on June 3, 2010. Coffs Harbour has Class D airspace procedures.

Pilots need to understand changes to the way they will communicate with air traffic control, how they will operate in local airspace and how aircraft surface movements will operate.

The Coffs Harbour workshop is being held on Wednesday, May 26, at the Opal Cove Resort, starting 6.30pm. Registrations for the workshop must be made on the CASA web site www.casa.gov.au
