Collision Avoidance, Airprox, Pilot Scans, CAA Safety Sense Leaflet #13

This video is narrated by an auto-voice.


• If you need glasses, carry any required spare pair.

• Clean the windshield and side windows (if either is badly scratched, have a new one fitted).

• If you are short or the aircraft has a high coaming, use a cushion.

• Plan your flight so you are looking ahead for expected features.

• Plan to avoid busy areas if possible.

• Beware of blind spots - move your head or manoeuvre the aircraft.

• Spend the minimum time with your head down checking the charts (or GPS), changing radio frequencies etc.

• The aircraft with little or no relative motion is the one which is hard to see – and the most hazardous.

• Aircraft below you may blend into the background of buildings etc. • High-intensity strobes can be useful on dull days.

• Use LARS and other radio information to form a mental picture of what is going on. Don’t rely solely on it – someone could be NON-RADIO.

• Develop and use an effective scan pattern.

• Don’t move the eyes continuously; stop and give them a chance to SEE.

• The external scan should take much longer than your instrument scan.

• When you have spotted another aircraft, do not fix on it and forget the rest of the surroundings.

• Select 7000 with ALT on your transponder at all times unless told otherwise.

• Use landing lights in the circuit.

• Consider cruising above any haze layer.

• Encourage your passengers to assist in the look-out.

• Report any AIRPROX.
