Wing Safety

Welcome to the 166th Airlift Wing Safety Office page.

This page contains Mid-Air Collision Avoidance (MACA) guidance.

Mid-Air Collisions are an area of great concern in aviation safety. They are unlike other types of aircraft accidents in that in almost 50 percent of all cases, there is at least one death.

In order to prevent this type of tragedy, we have prepared a MACA pamphlet. Part I describes the "See and Avoid" concept and provides positive suggestions to help you increase available protection. Part II is a description of our C-130 operations in Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey.

Please visit www.seeandavoid.org for additional Mid-Air Collision Avoidance information. If you have any questions, please contact the Delaware Air National Guard 166th Airlift Wing safety office (166AW/SE) at (302) 323-3522.
