Status: R&D NOT CURRENTLY ON CAST PLAN


Background

This safety enhancement outlines research and development (R&D) topics aimed at reducing fatal accidents due to mode confusion leading to loss of control. Information regarding observed instances of flight crew mode confusion (by airplane model) should be disseminated to operator training departments, manufacturers, and the aviation human factors research community.


This safety enhancement is not currently on the CAST Plan, but might be included in the future. In that event, the attached Implementation Plan would be revised prior to inclusion.
