Argyll and Bute General Aviation Safety Evening
Date: 06 March 2007

Argyll and Bute’s private pilots have an opportunity to develop their
knowledge and understanding of matters affecting aviation safety at a
specially arranged Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Safety Evening on
Thursday 15 March at Connel Gliding Clubhouse, Oban Airport, North Connel,

Anyone involved or interested in general aviation is invited to the
evening, which will be hosted by the Connel Gliding Club, Argyll Aero Club
and the Connel Microlight Club and introduced by David Cockburn, who is
responsible for safety promotion at the CAA’s Flight Operations
Inspectorate Department.

Attendees will be able to discuss with David and other specialists, such
topics as:

· aircraft accidents involving aircraft handling;
· decision making, including weather recognition;
· aircraft maintenance; and
· air traffic control services and airspace matters.

They will also have the chance to win a selection of prizes donated by
sponsors from the aviation industry.

The evening forms part of the CAA’s commitment to working with the aviation
industry to continue to improve air safety. Approximately 40 Safety Evening
presentations are held throughout the UK each year. Last year, over 2,000
people attended the series of evenings that took place at locations from
Perranporth to Dundee.

David Cockburn said: “Although private aviation in the UK has a good safety
record, all pilots, from trainees to experienced instructors, whatever
their aircraft type, should be continually seeking to refresh and refine
their skills and knowledge. These evenings provide an excellent opportunity
for that, and for sharing experience with others.

“The CAA has been running these Safety Evenings for many years and,
although they continue to be very popular, we want to reach out to as many
people as possible. I know that many pilots have busy schedules, but would
encourage anyone who is involved in any form of general aviation to attend.

“I am delighted we will be in Oban at the Connel Gliding Club on the 15
March 2007 and look forward to meeting those who can attend.”

The Safety Evening starts at 7.30 pm. Places are limited and those
intending to attend should contact Paul Keegan of the Argyll Aero Club on
01631 710888 or mobile 07770 620988. Admission is free and tea and coffee
will be provided.

Notes to Editors

The CAA is the UK's specialist aviation regulator. Its activities include:
making sure that the aviation industry meets the highest technical and
operational safety standards; preventing holidaymakers from being stranded
abroad or losing money because of tour operator insolvency; planning and
regulating all UK airspace; and regulating airports, air traffic services
and airlines and providing advice on aviation policy from an economic
