August 2018

It is December 24 and my app says the latest magazine is August 2018. Is this correct?

What's happening, you now need to download each section individually. It is even worse for back issues, I had all copies from 2014 now I have to download each one again, one story at a time and if not permanently connect to wifi you can't get access to them. Don't think I will bother anymore. Which is pity was a great magazine.

Hi LizzardAir,

Thanks for your message. We are sorry to hear that you are having problems downloading the app. We value you as a dedicated Flight Safety Australia reader and certainly don’t want to lose you!

Unfortunately we had to change the app as the platform that we used stopped supporting it. While you will have to download each issue again, you won’t have to do it page by page. After you select the issue you want to view, have a look in the top right-hand corner for the download icon. It looks like a down arrow pointing into a tray. We agree—it certainly isn’t clear and will try and make some changes to make this more obvious. Watch this space!

I hope this will assist in you sticking with us.

Not Safety At All

They call it Flight Safety Australia. I would suggest they take the word Safety out of the title as they aren’t spreading a Safety message any longer because they haven’t updated it since August 2018. One would have thought that an organisation such as CASA could get their house in order and actually update the app. A very disappointing attitude from CASA.
