Work Together, Stay Apart: A seminar for aerodrome users 2024

The CAA is holding educational seminars for aerodrome users throughout 2024 called Work Together, Stay Apart: A seminar for aerodrome users.

The seminars aim to:

  • Share safety occurrence data related to activities at the specific aerodrome locations
  • Cover the four main rules being reinforced in the Work Together, Stay Apart safety campaign: 91.127 Use of aerodromes, 91.223 Operating on and in the vicinity of an aerodrome, 91.227 operating near other aircraft, and 91.229 right of way rules
  • Reinforce standardised procedures
  • Encourage users to work together to manage areas of shared risk
  • Emphasise the importance of reporting.

In 2023, seminars were held in Rangiora and Masterton. As we confirm dates and additional locations for upcoming sessions, we’ll update the table below. We’ll be running 1 to 2 seminars per month, keep an eye out for more seminars as we add them.
