Each year the Safety Promotion team goes on the road with an AvKiwi Safety Seminar presentation, promoting good safety attitudes.
The presentations take about an hour, and afterwards there is usually time to socialise, swap stories, and chat with the presenter and others.
An AvKiwi subject could be anything from Fuel Management to Situational Awareness. Often an accident or incident is profiled in an effort to learn lessons from the experience of others.
We visit up to 30 towns throughout the country, from coast to coast and from Invercargill to Kerikeri.
The runway behind you,
The air above you,
and the fuel you left behind…
Whether you’re starving for new information, or too exhausted to find out the real gas, there’s more to fuel than you think.
Know Your Aircraft App
To help you understand more about the fuel system in your aircraft, we've created the Know Your Aircraft app. It's a vital tool to help pilots understand their aircraft in detail.
This app allows pilots to collect, understand, and retain data on all of their aircrafts fuel-based needs, ranging from how many fuel tanks and vents the aircraft has, to how much fuel is required to climb to a certain height.
Give it a try and if you have any feedback please let us know. It's available for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

A wise person once said, “mistakes are lessons”. That is never more true than in aviation.
Through accident investigation, the CAA and TAIC sift the causes of aircraft accidents and incidents. There are no new accidents – learn from those who have flown the paths before you.
Weather can be a puzzle – you’ve got all the pieces,
but how do you fit them together to create the right picture?
Accident investigations suggest that pilots who had weather related accidents didn’t understand the weather.
The 2015 seminar can help you navigate your way through the mass of information out there.
Are you ready to fly?
You’ve completed your planning, the aircraft is ready, but have you completed your Personal Preflight?
You would never fly an unsafe aircraft, but are you in top condition?
Situational awareness is the key to collision avoidance. Improving your situational awareness skills could save your life one day.
Simply put, situational awareness can be described as, “What was, what is, and what might be”.
The pilot priorities of Aviate - Navigate - Communicate are well-known. Plane Talking is all about the communicate part, and is made up of an Online Radio Course, a Good Aviation Practice booklet, and a CAA Advisory Circular.
