This safety enhancement substantially reduces or eliminates CFIT accidents by improving pilot situational awareness by establishing appropriate procedures for the installation and use of Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) equipment. Procedures include proper flight crew reaction in regard to TAWS aural and visual warnings.

Completed Outputs

The FAA issued a final rule in March 2000 that requires all new commercial aircraft to be equipped with TAWS equipment by March 2003, and the entire commercial fleet to be equipped by March 2005.
