SE073: Enhanced Airborne Radar – New Production


The purpose of this Safety Enhancement is to provide improved, real-time turbulence information to pilots, ground operations personnel, and forecasters for turbulence avoidance decisions and for input to turbulence forecasts. This will be accomplished through the improvement of automated airborne turbulence measurements; new flight deck displays of turbulence information; improved or new on-board look-ahead turbulence detection capabilities; and upgraded flight crew procedures for use of the improved information to avoid turbulence.

SE073 recommends enhanced radar be added to new production airplanes.

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.
