The article is focused on pilot stress reduction during landing by providing accurate height information. It is based on the results of the completed project TA04030510 – Assistance systems supporting the pilot’s right decisions increasing the safety of operating small civil aircraft. The landing is the most critical phase of a flight. Accidents occurring during approach and landing phases generally represent up to 40 % of all aircraft accidents. A frequent cause of these accidents is a pilot error. During project development, 112 accidents of ultralight aircraft and 152 accidents of small GA aircraft that happened from 2005 to 2015 were analyzed. In total, 48 aircraft landing-related accidents and 22 accidents in ultralight aircraft were found. Landing accidents represent 26.5% of all investigated accidents.
