Last week, the GAJSC Controlled Flight into Terrain (CFIT) Working Group met at Boeing in Renton, WA to complete its preliminary accident scoring efforts. Utilizing NTSB reports and docket information, the Working Group has reviewed and scored over 160 CFIT accidents. Next, the Working Group will begin safety intervention feasibility scoring and Safety Enhancement development.
The GAJSC has already used this process to develop 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.
