Land Ahead If Safe To Do So

A new safety briefing has been published reinforcing the established advice following a winch launch failure to ‘land ahead if it is safe to do so’.

The existence of heavy sink overhead or close to the launch site is an additional hazard associated with turning after a failed winch launch. The leaflet describes why sink during a turn following a launch failure is a hazard – following a winch launch failure, land ahead if it is safe to do so. Please download and read the leaflet.
