A CFIT accident is one where a properly functioning airplane under the control of a fully qualified and certified crew is flown into terrain, water or obstacles with no apparent awareness on the part of the crew.

As a result of these studies and recommendations from the U. FAA amended operating rules to require that all U. A report stated that from , when the U.

FAA made it a requirement for large aircraft to carry such equipment, until the time of the report, there had not been a single passenger fatality in a CFIT crash by a large jet in U. More advanced systems were developed. A computer then keeps track of these readings, calculates trends, and will warn the flight crew with visual and audio messages if the aircraft is in certain defined flying configurations "modes".

Since it can only gather data from directly below the aircraft, it must predict future terrain features. If there is a dramatic change in terrain, such as a steep slope, GPWS will not detect the aircraft closure rate until it is too late for evasive action. The system is combined with a worldwide digital terrain database and relies on Global Positioning System GPS technology. The Terrain Display gives pilots a visual orientation to high and low points nearby the aircraft.

EGPWS software improvements are focused on solving two common problems; no warning at all, and late or improper response. When the landing gear is down and landing flaps are deployed, the GPWS expects the airplane to land and therefore, issues no warning. Late warning or improper response[ edit ] The occurrence of a GPWS alert typically happens at a time of high workload and nearly always surprises the flight crew.

Almost certainly, the aircraft is not where the pilot thinks it should be, and the response to a GPWS warning can be late in these circumstances. Warning time can also be short if the aircraft is flying into steep terrain since the downward looking radio altimeter is the primary sensor used for the warning calculation.

Both pilots must respond and act accordingly once the alert has been issued. An Indonesian captain has been charged with manslaughter for not adhering to these procedures. Depending on the type of operation, TAWS is only required to be installed into turbine-powered aircraft with six or more passenger seats.

Thus, an enhanced system is required, taking inputs not only from the radar altimeter , but also from inertial navigation system INS , Global Positioning System GPS , and flight control system FCS , using these to accurately predict the flight path of the aircraft up to 5 miles 8. Digital maps of terrain and obstacle features are then used to determine whether a collision is likely if the aircraft does not pull up at a given pre-set g-level.

If a collision is predicted, a cockpit warning may be provided. This is the type of system deployed on aircraft such as the Eurofighter Typhoon. FAA has also conducted a study about adapting 3-D military thrust vectoring to recover civil jetliners from catastrophes.

The Terrain Display gives pilots a visual orientation to high and low points nearby the aircraft. More advanced systems were developed. Archived from the original on October 2, Warning time can also be short if the aircraft is flying into steep terrain since the downward looking radio altimeter is the primary sensor used for the warning calculation. Honeywell is working on this feature, too. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
