FAA Pilot Training
The Federal Aviation Administration’s new pilot training rule has been a long time coming, like the recommendation for simulator training for pilots in using TCAS that dates back to 1993, remedial training from 2005 for pilots with bad track records and training in aerodynamic stall recovery from the Colgan accident, and pilot monitoring. Just read FAA Administrator Michael Huerta’s discussion of the new Pilot training rule.
I look forward to safer skies from the implementation of this additional training. Hopefully operators in foreign countries will follow the FAA’s suit and ramp up their pilot training. It will be interesting to hear what pilots think of the new pilot training rule.
