Yesterday's incident where a pilot made an untimely and unplanned acquaintance with the rock face below the Gondola launch site, should be taken as a timely reminder about the importance of carrying and using a two way radio. The benefit of being able to talk to the seriously injured pilot and relaying instructions from emergency services to the pilot prior to being airlifted by the Westpac helicopter should not be underestimated. The radio does not have to be expensive but is equally as useful and important while flying to share information regarding flight conditions!
