Controlled Flight Into Terrain

Controlled Flight Into Terrain

The Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) module is designed for pilots flying turboprop and jet aircraft with a Terrain Awareness Warning System (TAWS) installed in the aircraft: Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS), Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), or other TAWS system. The module raises awareness of CFIT hazards and best practices to avoid a CFIT accident. The training module provides an overview of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Flight Safety Foundation, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) CFIT Education and Training Aid as it applies to business aircraft operations. Case studies on CFIT accidents and some near misses are included.

The NBAA Management Guide (section 2.4) recommends advanced flight crew training above and beyond the regulatory requirements of the FAA as a best practice. That recommendation specifically cites CFIT training. This training module would satisfy that NBAA training recommendation.

 

There is no specific requirement to train on CFIT under Part 135 unless you have added it to your training program. We can customize our standard module for any procedures you have outlined for CFIT avoidance or CFIT escape maneuvers in your manuals. The NTSB Most Wanted list includes Improve the Safety of Part 135 Aircraft Flight Operations. Part of that recommendation is to incorporate a CFIT-avoidance training program that addresses current TAWS technologies. This eLearning module would satisfy that NTSB recommendation.
The module is not required by the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) or Business Aviation Safety Consortium (BASC) standard.
