SE022: Flight Deck Equipment Upgrades – Existing Type Designs


This safety enhancement ensures altitude awareness and accomplishment of checklist items. This will be accomplished through the development of guidelines and procedures for flight deck smart alerting system design and supporting operational procedures and training based upon:

  1. The installation of equipment to provide automatic aural altitude alert call-outs on final approach or other such altitude alerting systems.
  2. The installation of automated or mechanical checklist devices to provide a positive means for checklist completion.
  3. Research and assessment of existing technology in flight deck smart-alerting system design.

The actions of this SE have been implemented for new type designs. See SE021: Flight Deck Equipment Upgrades for New Type Designs

This safety enhancement is not currently on the CAST Plan, but might be included in the future. In that event, the attached Implementation Plan would be revised prior to inclusion.
