  • NTSB's 2009 Most Wanted List
    Posted by Elyse Moody 7:55 PM on Oct 29, 2008

    The National Transportation Safety Board issued its annual Federal Most Wanted list of safety improvements yesterday. In the aviation category, it focuses on:

    - Improving the safety of emergency medical services (EMS) flights

    - Improving runway safety (Look for an article in the upcoming November issue of O&M exploring retrofit products designed to reduce the risk of runway incursions.)

    - Reducing dangers in icing conditions

    - Requiring image data recorders in the cockpit

    Note: This year's list does not include "Eliminate Flammable Fuel/Air Vapors in Fuel Tanks on Transport Category Aircraft," which was an area of concern last year. It has been removed because FAA passed a final rule in this area in July.
