Despite advances in technology, CFIT accidents remain the second leading cause of general aviation fatal accidents.  This session will present the collaborative work of the General Aviation Joint Steering Committee’s (GAJSC) CFIT working group and their effort to reduce this accident category.  The group recently completed a two-year analysis of fatal accidents and issued a set of data-driven recommendations focusing on education, training and enabling new equipment in GA aircraft.  Learn more about the group’s work and how you can support and benefit from it!
