SAFETY REVIEW. GENERAL AVIATION WEATHER ACCIDENTS. AN ANALYSIS AND PREVENTIVE STRATEGIES

Weather is a leading factor in light aircraft accidents. Concerned over the safety issues involved, the Flying Physicians Association funded this study of weather related accidents. The review examines accidents that occurred from 1982-1993, identifies typical characteristics and experience of pilots involved in adverse weather events, the classes of airplanes flown and the phases of flight that presented weather challenges. Sections of the report include principal conclusions, recommendations, "quick look" summaries by weather conditions, a statistical overview, a compilation of accidents in brief, an educational supplement with training guidelines and recommendations, a glossary and an index.
