  • Abstract:
    This report documents an investigation of the flight paths of 13 selected controlled flight into terrain (CFIT) aircraft accidents that occurred between 1985 and 1997. The Operations Assessment Division (DTS-43) and the Aviation Safety Division (DTS-67) of the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center, Cambridge, MA, conducted this study. The study was performed for the Aircraft Certification Service, Aircraft Engineering Division (AIR-100) of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Information in this study supports development of proposed FAA Technical Standard Order TSO-C151 addressing terrain awareness and warning systems (TAWS). (1) The purpose of the study was to collect and present data describing the flight paths of the aircraft involved in the 13 selected CFIT accidents. These flight path data will be used to construct CFIT accident scenarios, which will in turn be used to test the effectiveness of alternative TAWS systems, developed by the aircraft avionics industry, in preventing CFIT accidents.
