“4th Quarter Aviation Mishap Spike”

A breakdown of the briefing:

•     The fourth quarter (July-September) of each fiscal year has historically shown an increase in aviation mishaps.

•     FY15-19: 40% of the Army’s aviation accidents occurred during the fourth quarter despite flying only 27% of flight hours. However, August consumes the largest number of flight hours during the year and accounts for about 50% of fourth-quarter mishaps.

•     Consistent with this trend, the only fourth-quarter mishap during FY20 occurred in August, which again logged the highest total flight hours. The fourth quarter of FY20 consumed 28% of the annual flight hour program
