The leading cause of fatal aviation accidents worldwide remains loss of control in-flight, whereby control of the aircraft is lost or the aircraft enters an extreme deviation from the intended flight path (LOC-I). The primary purpose of the research contained herein is to evaluate a purposed methodology of analyzing FOQA/FDM data recorded by a typical TAA general aviation aircraft in order to predict the probability that a vehicle upset or loss of control in-flight could occur. Probability values obtained from the purposed methodology could be used for root cause analysis of high risk occurrences and to assist in the development of and analysis of proactive mitigation strategies.
