GAJSC Controlled Flight Into Terrain Working Group Meets in Anchorage, Alaska

The GAJSC Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) Working Group met this week at the University of Alaska Anchorage Aviation Technology Center in Anchorage, Alaska. The group completed work scoring the feasibility of safety intervention strategies toward the development of CFIT Safety Enhancements. The group also visited Anchorage Tower and TRACON to meet with local controllers to discuss ongoing work to mitigate CFIT events and the unique challenges of flying in Alaska.

The GAJSC already has issued Safety Enhancements to mitigate Loss of Control – Inflight (LOC-I) and System Component Failure – Powerplant (SCF-PP) accidents. Read the GAJSC’s reports and recommendations at LOC-I and SCF-PP.
