MELBOURNE - The TNI-AU/RAAF Safety and Airworthiness Joint Working Group (JWG) was established in 2011 by Indonesia and Australia to jointly investigate and improve the safety and airworthiness management systems of both Air Forces. The JWG conducts two formal meetings every year to assess the Working Group’s progress against its assigned tasks and help plan future activities. In conjunction with the meetings themselves, the JWG also takes the opportunity to visit operational, technical and other units so that the JWG can see and learn from real-world examples of how both Air Forces are continuing to improve safety and airworthiness systems in support of achieving Zero Accidents.The first JWG meeting for 2018 was recently held in Australia, where the JWG also visited Defence units at RAAF Base East Sale and in the Melbourne area between 23-27 Apr 18. The JWG is planning to follow the April meeting with a reciprocal visit to Indonesia later in the year.

The meeting was jointly chaired by AFM Agung Heru Santoso Kadislambangjaau and AIRCDRE Tony Jones, leader of the RAAF team, and supported by JWG members and Colonel Riva Yanto, Indonesia’s Air Force  Attaché to Australia. The meeting itself was held on Wednesday, 25 April. After representatives of both Air Forces provided the Co-Chairs with their safety program updates, the JWG meeting:

  • progressed two major projects currently being conducted by the JWG, dealing with:
    • aviation risk management, and
    • aircraft maintenance tool control improvement
  • resolved final planning for three impending staff exchange attachments, dealing with:
    • aviation safety reporting tools,
    • aviation safety officer training, and
    • non-technical skills human factors training; and
  • discussed three potential future staff exchange attachments, dealing with:
    • mobile training team support to aviation safety officer training in Indonesia,
    • observing military air traffic control training in Australia, and
    • the roles, responsibilities and training of flying supervisors to assist flight authorisation

 

RAAF Base East Sale is home to the RAAF’s Air Training Wing, where the JWG was briefed on exciting changes to ADF aircrew training and saw, first hand, how the safety and airworthiness challenges associated with safely operating and maintaining PC-9A training and King Air aircraft were being managed by the RAAF whilst coincidentally introducing the new fleet of PC-21 training aircraft. The JWG was welcomed to East Sale by Group Captain Dennis Tan, Officer Commanding Air Training Wing, and briefed by WGCDR James Atkinson, Commanding Officer of the RAAF’S Central Flying School. WGCDR Atkinson discussed how he ensures the coincident safety and airworthiness of flying instructor training and Roulette operations, both at and away from East Sale.

While at East Sale, the JWG also visited:

  • No 32 Squadron, which operates Beech 350 King Air aircraft;
  • the School of Air Traffic Control (SATC), where the JWG was shown how simulation is used to assist training military air traffic controllers;
  • the Air Training and Commons Systems Program Office (ATACSPO), where the JWG was briefed on how the SPO assures the safe operation of PC-9/A and King Air aircraft while preparing to introduce the PC-21 fleet; and
  • the RAAF’s new Air Academy, which will collocate all initial RAAF aircrew, basic pilot and flying instructor training, using PC-21 aircraft and dome flight simulators.

 

After the JWG meeting and visits to East Sale units, the JWG drove to Melbourne and visited the:

  • Aeronautical Information Service-Air Force, where the JWG was provided with an update regarding the transition from paper-based to digital aeronautical information, including charts, approach plates and other procedures;
