CFIT - The Greatest Scourge in Aviation
Controlled Flight into Terrain -- How, Why and What to do to prevent it from ever happening again.
Date and Time:
Monday, November 22, 2021, starting at 20:00 Eastern Standard Time (17:00 PST; 18:00 MST; 19:00 CST; 15:00 HST; 16:00 AKST; 18:00 Arizona; Tuesday, November 23, 2021 01:00 GMT)
Bob Katz
Brief Description:

Controlled Flight into Terrain (CFIT) is the result of a loss of Situational Awareness that begins before the aircraft departs the ground. The threat of CFIT is always present and can only be mitigated by compliance with 91.103 Preflight Action. Join us tonight as we explore the particulars of a notorious incident that occurred in Arizona 10 years ago. Discover why it is essential that we as a community of pilots must face the reality of how we handicap ourselves when we choose to NOT learn from the mistakes of others and our own past experiences.


The focus of this webinar is an exercise in 91.103 compliance. You are the Pilot in Command of a powerful, well-equipped aircraft tasked to plan this flight under identical circumstances. It is up to you to determine what is required of both yourself and your airplane to complete the mission safely.


There is no ONE right way to plan any flight. The format of this webinar is not a presentation/lecture to be delivered down a one-way street. We will actively discuss the scenario and explore all of our available options so as to responsibly conduct this flight and arrive alive to fly another day. Coherent Aeronautical Decision Making starts with the practical application of the fundamentals. Every aeronautical decision we make will have tradeoffs so it will be to everyone's benefit to speak freely and exchange ideas. We will learn from each other's knowledge, experiences and perspectives.
