Civil Aviation Authority hosts air accident response course

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands recently hosted the Air Accident Response course for British Overseas.

The course was presented by the UK’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch at the Family Life Centre.

It aimed to train key personnel on what to do in the initial 48 hours after an accident, prior to the arrival of the branch’s official appointed air accident investigators.

Topics featured information on how to preserve evidence, how not to contaminate the investigation site, and the basics associated with the initial response from multiple agencies, including the Civil Aviation Authority, Health Services Authority, police and fire services, the Cayman Islands Airports Authority, Cayman Airways and immigration and customs departments.
