Last week, To Be A Pilot attended a GASCo hosted Safety Evening at Hawarden Airport in association with Flintshire Flying School with around 50 attendees. Below we have put together a brief review of the evening, what it’s all about and why you should attend one.
The General Aviation Safety Council, or GASCo, are a charity funded organisation focused on providing safety advice to the general aviation community of the United Kingdom. The organisation was set up 1964 as a forum for a number of general aviation safety organisations to share information with one another. Today, GASCo is run by a dedicated group of volunteers with a variety of extensive experiences in the aviation industry. They host safety evenings around the country designed to inform pilots about the latest safety advice. The safety evenings are provided by 8 volunteers around the country who are each assigned their own areas. They also provide seminars on specific subjects, such as Weather Decision Making and Ditching and Sea Survival.
