Controlled Flight Into Terrain Working Group Meets in Boston, MA

The GAJSC Controlled Flight Into Terrain Working Group met for the last time in 2018 at Signature BOS in Boston, MA. Currently, the Working Group is drafting detailed, data-driven safety recommendations aimed at mitigating controlled flight into terrain accidents. Draft recommendations include a wide range of interventions, from technological tools to training, outreach, and education. The recommendations will be released next year in a report on the Working Group’s analysis and findings.

The GAJSC already has issued recommendations 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.

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.

GAJSC Controlled Flight Into Terrain Working Group Meeting

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.
