Over the recent summer months, the ATSB has seen an unprecedented increase
in turbulence events. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau’s monitoring of
the latest aviation events has revealed a significant increase in the number of
weather-related occurrences involving high-capacity air transport aircraft.
Turbulence being the leading cause of in-flight injuries to passengers and
cabin crew, the ATSB has produced a booklet, Staying Safe against In-flight
Turbulence, which is available for free download.
