EGAST Leaflet GA 1 Collision Avoidance

See-and-avoid’ is the main method used to minimise the risk of collision when flying in visual meteorological conditions. It is an integral part of a pilot’s ‘situational awareness’, in other words the skill involved in looking outside the cockpit or flight deck and becoming aware of what is happening around the aircraft. Actively looking for possible traffic and obstacles, for instance.
This Leaflet is based on the ICAO Circular 213–AN /130 and on Safety Sense leaflet produced by the UK CAA. It will help pilots  to make ‘look-out’ more effective. It should be of interest to all pilots, regardless of the type of aircraft they fly.
