“Conflicts such as those described in this letter would have been clear violations of FAA safety and separation standards had the scenarios involved two aircraft departing the airport rather than one arrival and one departure,” the NTSB says. “There appears to be no safety justification for treating the situations differently.”

The NTSB is asking the FAA to create separation standards between an arriving aircraft performing a go-around, and “any combination of arriving or departing aircraft operating on runways where flight paths may intersect.”
