Invitation to Chief Pilots’ Working Group - Pacific 2013 Offshore Helicopters Symposium – 8 Oct 2013

The Pacific 2013 Offshore Helicopters Symposium will be held in Conference Room G04 from 0900 to 1700 hours on Tue 8 October 2013, at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour, Sydney. There are a number of 40 minute speaking opportunities for those who may wish to present to the off-shore helicopter and associated emergency, HEMS and training industries. We have invited speakers to explain the new CASA rules on commercial operations and in particular; latest IFR, co-pilot qualifications and multi-engine engine performance standards. The changes to the latter will result in many hospital helipads and oil rig platforms operations being considered unsuitable for the current medium to heavy helicopters, unless the new EASA rules are modified. Attendance is free; but you must book a seat for catering purposes – email secretary@austhia.com or call 0415 641 774. (170 seats available - forty now booked).
