- Avoid midair collisions through proper flight planning and flight safety.
- Avoiding terrain and obstacles, especially at night or in low visibility, is easier if altitudes already shown on VFR and IFR charts are used as part of your preflight planning.
- Historically, about two-thirds of all general aviation (GA) accidents that occur in reduced-visibility weather conditions are fatal. These accidents typically involve pilot spatial disorientation or controlled flight into terrain.
- Some pilots do not pay adequate attention to indications of aircraft mechanical problems, which can lead to in-flight emergencies and accidents.
