SOME IMPORTANT RESULTS OBTAINED DURING THE ANALYSIS OF NEAR MIDAIR AND MIDAIR COLLISIONS

EINIGE WICHTIGE ERKENNTNISSE BEI DER ANALYSE VON KRITISCHEN ANNAEHERUNGEN UND ZUSAMMENSTOESSEN

The report deals with theoretical studies concerning the analysis of near midair and midair collisions under visual meteorological conditions. The applicability of the rules of the air for pilots approaching a powered glider or flying in the critical area between converging courses and overtaking is studied. The effectiveness of horizontal evasive manoeuvres in this area is examined using some examples. Retrictions on a pilot's ability to see an approaching aircraft caused by meteorological phenomena, too small dimensions of the aircraft, the workload of the observing pilot, and by opaque structures in his cockpit are discussed.
