For many decades the GA community has used the CAA's Safety Sense Leaflets to help stay safe. They cover a range of subjects from winter flying to balloon airmanship. Now, taking a lead from the success of the Skyway Code guide, the CAA has started to update some of the key leaflets.

First of the news series is an update of the advice for flying with passengers. As COVID restrictions are further lifted it increases the chance for GA pilots to share their flying with a wider group of friends and relatives. The leaflet contains a wealth of advice to make these flights safe and comfortable.

All the Safety Sense Leaflets, including the new passenger guide, are available on our website.

Other updated leaflets are currently being developed for release over the coming months.

Sophie-Louise O'Sullivan, Head of General Aviation & Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) said: “The GA community has always told us that they really value the Safety Sense Leaflets. Our project to update them will make sure they continue to help people fly safely for many years to come.”
