Accidents and serious incidents (commonly called Immediately Reportable Matters), which affect the safety of aircraft must, in the first instance, be notified to the ATSB by telephone toll-free call: 1800 011 034.

In addition to the above statutory requirement, it is a Gliding Australia requirement that Immediately Reportable Matters are also reported to the Gliding Australia Executive Manager, Operations (EM/O) or the Chairman of the Operations Panel (COP) at or around the time they are reported to ATSB. The telephone contact details for the EM/O and COP can be found on the Gliding Australia website. The EM/O or COP will notify the appropriate Gliding Australia officers and the Regional Manager Operations of the relevant Region.

Safety Strategy Gliding Australia 2020 – 2025

Gliding in Australia is thinly spread, regionally distributed. Leveraging the existing subsidiarity principle of the sport through regions and clubs is preferable over centralized safety control;

Safety policy standardization through SMS across clubs and regions is now almost complete. Further centralized safety bureaucratization is unlikely to meet current and emerging needs, and is not projected to contribute to prevention of fatalities/serious injuries
