Figure 13. From (Padfield, 2013)ConclusionThe aviation industry is two to three years from having the ability to “see through” DVE conditions. However, there are alternatives that are available today. H.N. Burns would be the author’s top recommendation for military operation while flying in brownout conditions. MFL should cut down the accident rates and reduce the brownout accidents from 56% to a lower percentage number. Honeywell’s smartview system would be the author’s top choice for all othergeneral purposes helicopter operations. Bottom line, there’s never a good reason why a pilot has crashed due to CFIT or lack of SA with all the advanced avionics technology that’s currently available. The government, corporate, and private agencies should always strive to ensure their pilots have the safest and most reliable aircraft avionic components available.
