In releasing our final investigation report the ATSB's hope is that this tragic accident should be a reminder for all pilots of the dangers of controlled flight into terrain (CFIT) especially during approach and landing in dark night conditions and at times of inclement weather with reduced visibility and into unfamiliar aerodromes.

The Bureau is a member of the International Flight Safety Foundation and the Bureau's report highlights the extensive research undertaken by the Flight Safety Foundation into the CFIT phenomenon and the benefit of their education and prevention programs, which are widely available.
