EDP Research Project

A disturbing number of “Controlled Flight Into Terrain” (CFIT) accidents continue to plague the helicopter industry, where VFR flight at low altitudes in uncontrolled airspace is the rule rather than the exception, and where flights are often conducted in marginal weather conditions.

NEMSPA and associated supporters in the air medical transport community purport to define and validate an industry-standard protocol to assist pilots to assess and respond to encounters with the kind of deteriorating en route conditions that have prevailed in nearly every CFIT accident that has occurred in air medical transport operations.
