Last week, the GAJSC Controlled Flight into Terrain (CFIT) Working Group met for the last time at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida. The Working Group finished drafting safety recommendations targeted at reducing the number of CFIT general aviation accidents. The NTSB’s 2019-2020 Most Wanted List includes a discussion of CFIT avoidance as part of the Board’s “Improve the Safety of Part 135 Aircraft Flight Operations” issue area.
The Working Group will present its Safety Enhancements to the GAJSC for review and approval at the GAJSC’s meeting early next month. The recommendations are slated to be released later this year, along with a report on the Working Group’s efforts.
