The Civil Aviation Authority has published Safety Notice SN-2020/011.
The impact of Covid-19 has been significant across the aviation industry, the majority of operations either ceasing or being greatly reduced, while some have changed or increased. The industry is now developing restart activities to return to some level of commercial flying operation. There may be a negative impact on the performance of people within the aviation system after months of inactivity, and with continued uncertainty about the industry recovery.
The purpose of this Safety Notice is to support the industry to understand the impact of restart activities on their staff and the potential human factors (HF) risks they should be aware of and should be managing.
