ATS 3.19 MINIMUM SAFE ALTITUDE WARNING SYSTEMS

There continues to be an unacceptable high level of Controlled Flight into Terrain (CFIT) accidents. Although there are enhancements in the cockpit to prevent such incidents: Ground Proximity Warnings (GPWS), IFATCA believes that devices such as Minimum Safe Altitude Warning (MSAW) activated on the controllers’ screens should be employed as an additional layer of safety.


IFATCA Policy is:

MSAW shall be fully implemented with appropriate operational requirements, procedures, and training in order to significantly reduce the number of CFIT.
