OVERVIEW
  • What is FITS?
  • Why do we need it?
  • Who is involved?
  • Introductions.
what is fits
What is FITS?

FITS is a joint government-stakeholder initiative designed to reduce the total number of general aviation accidents.

This means using scenario-based training to effectively integrate:

  • Risk Management;
  • Aeronautical Decision Making;
  • Situational Awareness; and
  • Single Pilot Resource Management into
  • EVERY flight operation!!

“The airport runway is the

Most important mainstream

In any town.”

-Norm Crabtree

fits mission statement and imperative
FITS Mission Statement and Imperative

FITS Mission Statement:

Improve pilot learning to safely, competently, and efficiently operate a technically advanced piston or light jet aircraft in the modern National Airspace System (NAS).

FITS Imperatives:

Implement training that reduces the human error element and accelerates acquisition of higher-level judgment and decision-making skills.

Bottom Line: Structured way to teach pilot to safely, competently, and efficiently operate a technically advanced piston or light jet aircraft

why do we need fits history
Why Do We Need FITS?-History
  • New Technologies produced initial spike in accidents
    • Bonanza
    • Lear Jet
    • Malibu
    • Cirrus
  • Main Causal Factor-Pilots not being trained for the technology
why do we need fits
Why Do We Need FITS?

Legacy vs. Technically Advanced Aircraft

Greater

Sophistication – Speed – Range - Single engine performance - Payload

All major OEMs now offering “glass cockpit” avionics.

why do we need fits operational environment changes
Why Do We Need FITS?-Operational Environment Changes
  • Airspace Changes-ADIZ, TFR, etc.
  • Security Changes-Hassle and delay factors
  • Airline Changes-Fewer and fuller flights
  • New cockpit and aircraft technologies- Avidyne FlightMax, Garmin G1000, Adam, Cirrus, Diamond, Eclipse, Lancair, etc.
  • General Aviation is no longer a monolith- Sport pilot to BBJ

EQUALS

  • GA is being used as a transportation option
