Legislation Will Make Regional Flying Safer

The father of a victim of Continental Flight 3407 which crashed near Buffalo, N.Y. in February 2009, lauds legislation recently passed in Washington.

His 30-year-old daughter was a victim of the crash which killed 49 on board and one person on the ground and he has been instrumental in getting changes in the federal aviation regulations. The investigation of the crash uncovered the pilots were too inexperienced, especially in dealing with icing situations that was a factor in the crash.

Now all that’s left is for the Senate and the House to compromise on their versions of the bill. The House wants 1,500 hours of training for the pilots and co-pilots for regional airlines and the Senate is asking for only 800 hours. The required hours at this time is only 250.

The changes will take three years to become effective.
