TSB: Whiteout conditions, loss of situational awareness a danger to pilots

from CNW

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada released its investigation report into the February 2013 collision with terrain of a Cessna 210C in Waskada, Manitoba. The investigation determined that the terrain — coupled with the reported meteorological conditions — was conducive to whiteout, a winter atmospheric optical phenomenon in which the observer appears to be engulfed in a uniformly white glow. Whiteout conditions may result in a poorly defined visual horizon that will reduce the pilot's ability to detect changes in altitude, airspeed and position. more
