The recent accident of a helicopter crashing into the side of the mountain in California causes us to reflect as pilots on how we could prevent this from happening to us. Today we discuss VFR into IMC, statistics, prevention, and survival when we find ourselves flying IMC while VFR.

Listener Mail From Victoria.

“With the unfortunate accident with Kobe Bryant, there’s a discussion on Pilots of America about whether synthetic vision would have helped.  I think this might make for an interesting topic on the AvCast. I do wonder if the synthetic vision would be any help in those situations, and would it make the “178 seconds to live” scenario a thing of the past?  Or if activating an autopilot with an auto-level (or even 180-degree heading feature) would have helped in that situation.  

On my Sportcruiser, I changed the Garmin 496 to a Garmin Aera 660 and my AHRS source is from a GDL-39 3D unit.  I also upgraded my autopilot to the TruTrak Vizion with auto-level feature (before the Bendix King acquisition).  I don’t ever plan to fly into clouds, or beyond twilight conditions, but I know things happen, so having the Aera 660 with synthetic vision provides some relief, though I hope to never have to use it in those conditions.

Thank you again!”
