Over the last few years, the safety record of U.S. commercial airlines has improved to the point where the statistics on accidents are negligible. The overwhelming numbers of aviation fatalities occur in General Aviation (GA) accidents. While the fatal accident rate has improved-from around 5.0 per 100,000 miles flown in the post-World War II era to varying between 1.2 and 1.5 since 1996-it still results in 450 to 700 deaths per year. In 2013, improving GA safety was on the National Transportation Safety Boards (NTSBs) most wanted list. The NTSB has cited a lack of aeronautical knowledge as the cause of many of these accidents. If pilots are required to pass Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) knowledge and practical tests prior to obtaining a new pilot certificate, how could they not possess the knowledge needed to operate in the National Airspace System (NAS)? Some, attributing it to a failure to learn basic aeronautical knowledge, are concerned that potential pilots memorize the answers ...

A pilot was found dead Saturday after a single-engine plane crashed in a field near the southern Minnesota town of Grand Meadow, the Federal Aviation Administration said. The pilot was not immediately identified. FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory said investigators believe the pilot was the only person on the Cessna 140.. The plane was flying from New Richmond, Wis., to Fulton, Mo., with a stopover planned in Oskaloosa, Iowa. It went missing shortly after making contact with the FAAs Minneapolis center about 12:50 a.m., when it was flying over the Rochester area.. About 50 members of the Minnesota Wing Civil Air Patrol started a ground search about 2 a.m., focusing on areas south of Rochester.. The plane was found just outside Grand Meadow, which is about 25 miles southwest of Rochester.. The Austin Daily Herald reported the planes wreckage was first spotted about 9 a.m. by Larry Churchill and his son, Brian, who live nearby.. Cory said the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board ...
A White House proposal to eliminate funding for the U.S. Chemical Safety Board signals a full retreat from two decades of progress against chemical disasters and would, if enacted, put American lives in jeopardy, health and safety experts told the House Chronicle. The CSB mission to investigate chemical disasters and make recommendations is similar to the better-funded National Transportation Safety Boards investigations of airline crashes, train derailments and bridge collapses.

Pilots who are considered hypertensive are closely monitored by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to ensure that their hypertension is properly controlled. During the investigation of fatal civil aviation accidents, postmortem samples obtained from pilots are submitted to the FAAs Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI) for toxicological evaluation. During such evaluation, submitted samples are analyzed for prescription and nonprescription drugs, and it is common to find beta-blocker antihypertensives such as atenolol, metoprolol, and propranolol in the submitted biological samples. During a 10-year period of 1993-2002, postmortem samples from 3290 civil aviation accident pilot fatalities (cases) were received by CAMI. Toxicological evaluation of these cases revealed that 50 of the 3290 fatalities had the commonly prescribed beta-blockers, atenolol, metoprolol, and propranolol. Out of the 50 fatalities, atenolol, metoprolol, and propranolol were found to be present in 24, 19, and 7 ...

Accidents have occurred when dope is not used correctly, for example when mixed with other chemicals, used on the wrong fabrics, or applied to contaminated or improperly prepared surfaces. In the 1930 R101 disaster,[5] improper doping caused the fabric of the airship to become brittle and easily torn. On 27 April 1995 91-year-old aircraft designer, builder and significant figure in the homebuilt aircraft movement, Steve Wittman and his wife were killed when their Wittman O&O Special broke up in flight due to delamination and separation of the wing fabric, resulting in wing aeroelastic flutter. The US National Transportation Safety Board investigation determined that the layers and types of doping they used did not have "the best adhesive qualities" and referred to "the Poly-Fiber Covering and Painting Manual" for proper processes to use.[6] ...
NEW YORK - The National Transportation Safety Board Tuesday began a formal investigation into the Southwest Airlines accident Monday at New Yorks LaGuardia airport that injured eight and disrupted traffic.
YONKERS, N.Y. - A commuter train that derailed over the weekend, killing four passengers, was hurtling at 82 mph as it entered a 30 mph curve, a federal investigator said Monday. But whether the wreck was the result of human error or brake trouble was unclear, he said.. Asked why the train was going so fast, National Transportation Safety Board member Earl Weener said: "Thats the question we need to answer.". He would not disclose what the engineer operating the train had told investigators. Weener said investigators were examining the engineers cellphone - apparently to determine whether he was distracted.. Weener said the information on the locomotives speed was preliminary and extracted from the Metro-North trains two data recorders, taken from the wreckage after the Sunday morning accident in the Bronx.. He said the throttle went to idle six seconds before the derailed train came to a complete stop - "very late in the game" for a train going that fast - and the brakes were fully engaged ...

NEW YORK  - The driver of a train that derailed in December in New York City, killing four passengers, had an undiagnosed sleep disorder at the time of the accident, the National Transportation Safety Board said on Monday.
when it crashed around 10:40 p.m. Sunday in a small field in the 10100 block of South 86th… (Alexandra Chachkevitch) If a pilot couldnt see the ground and wasnt paying close attention to the instruments, its possible they would not be aware anything was wrong, he said. No distress call was sent from the plane, said John Brannen, senior air safety investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board, as authorities began investigating the crash and removing debris the following day. The report noted Rehman hadnt filed a flight plan, but Schieszer said that while its generally a good idea to do so, it isnt required and he may have intended to file one once en route. The wreckage, which "exhibited severe crushing and fragmentation of all components," was removed from the site for additional investigation, according to the report. Nothing was being ruled out as a potential cause, Brannen said the day after the accident. "Accidents are rarely due to one thing," Schieszer said. "Perhaps ...

While we wait for answers in the Air France investigation, we are learning new details about the so-called "Miracle on the Hudson." We all remember the pictures, of course. US Airways Flight 1549 forced to ditch in New Yorks Hudson River after a bird strike back in January. Amazingly everyone onboard survived and the pilot, Captain Chesley Sullenberger was celebrated as a hero, rightfully so. Today, the National Transportation Safety Board opened three days of hearings on Flight 1549s close call. Captain Sullenberger testified and so did Billy Campbell, a passenger who was in Seat 25-A in the second to the last row of the plane. And he was the last passenger out the door. His testimony today was simply riveting ...
But a growing thicket of regulations and laws can make drone operation confusing for hobbyists, commercial operators and researchers who use drones.. "The FAA is supposed to be the ultimate authority on drones, and the National Transportation Safety Board is supposed to be involved if there are certain kinds of accidents," said Bill Johnson, professor of geography and atmospheric science at the University of Kansas. "But now youve got all these state and local regulations popping up or being proposed. For example, Oklahoma was trying to put this bill together allowing shootdowns, but it didnt go anywhere. The city of Raleigh (North Carolina) is considering pretty much banning drones in their parks. Back in 2014, the National Park Service said no to drones, unless you have a special use permit.". To help sort out the current "adolescence" of drone laws, Johnson and KU graduate student Dakota Burt recently published new research in Earth Magazine detailing myriad legal underpinnings of operating ...
Web posted at: 11:50 a.m. EDT FOX RIVER GROVE, Illinois (CNN) -- As federal investigators focus on a traffic signal where a train hit a bus killing seven students, the bus driver in Wednesdays accident said the signal was red and that she never heard the train before impact. John Goglia of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said the problem may have been in the timing of the signal system and its engineering. "The timing doesnt appear to be proper," he said. He said the approaching train was supposed to trigger a signal that turned the light green to allow vehicles trapped on the track to pass. Tests revealed the lights would change 20 to 25 seconds after the train activated a sensor, however, it took the train only 18 seconds to cover the distance from the sensor to the intersection. (793K QuickTime animation). Goglia said the NTSB has interviewed the driver of the bus. "She states that she stopped prior to entering the crossing, opened the door, looked and listened for traffic, ...
At FAA headquarters in Washington, DC, David Canoles, the FAAs manager of air traffic evaluations and investigations, and his staff begin coordinating the collection of forensic evidence that might clarify how the mornings attacks unfolded. They coordinate the capture and copying of radar track data showing the paths of the four hijacked planes, and obtain air traffic control voice tapes from every facility that had spoken with these planes. FAA Assistant Investigations Manager Tony Mello and other employees will work for most of the afternoon, all night, and part of the following day, gathering data and coordinating with the FBI, Secret Service, Defense Department, White House, and National Transportation Safety Board, making sure these other agencies receive as much evidence as is available. Radar tracks are crudely plotted, showing the flight paths of the four jets, and voice tapes are transcribed. Having been stuck in Chicago when the attacks occurred, (see 8:30 a.m. September 11, 2001), ...
Well have a very long marine casualty investigation to follow this," she said.. The Port of Houston, a major part of the ship channel, is home to the nations largest and one of the worlds largest petrochemical complexes. It typically handles about 70 ships per day, plus 300 to 400 tugboats and barges, and consistently ranks first in the nation in foreign waterborne tonnage, U.S. imports and U.S. export tonnage. It is second in the U.S. in total tonnage.. Officials with two states agencies, the General Land Office and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, said they would play a backup role in any cleanup effort, deferring to the Coast Guard for any assistance they may need to provide.. The land office was providing personnel and equipment, spokesman Jim Suydam said. TCEQ could assist with water sampling and monitoring of air quality if the Coast Guard requested it, spokesman Terry Clawson said.. The National Transportation Safety Board also dispatched a team of investigators to the ...

The two year anniversary of the Kalamazoo tar sands spill follows a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) report issued last week raising serious questions about whether corrosive tar sands can be safety moved on the U.S. pipeline system. The NTSB report was also a searing indictment of pipeline company Enbridge who is planning major tar sands expansions throughout the Midwest and possibly into New England. U.S. pipeline regulators recently announced the largest fine ever proposed saying Enbridge likely violated two dozen regulations.. While we grapple with whether tar sands can be safely piped through the U.S. pipeline system, there are many proposals for new or expanded tar sands pipelines. There are many existing tar sands pipelines and many more proposed routes all over North America. There are also new tar sands pipelines that are being proposed such as Keystone XL would carry the same raw tar sands oil from Canada over Americas heartland to the Gulf Coast for export. The proposed ...
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has authority to approve air carrier requests to deploy less-than-lethal weapons, including electric stun devices, onboard commercial aircraft to thwart an attack. Since the terrorist attacks of 2001, one air carrier received approval to deploy electric stun devices. To address concerns regarding reports of injuries after the use of these devices and to ensure that the impacts of these devices onboard aircraft have been fully evaluated, this report answers the following: (1) What analyses has the federal government conducted to assess the safety and effectiveness of these devices onboard commercial aircraft? (2) What controls does TSA have in place to help ensure uniform and timely review of air carrier requests to deploy these devices onboard commercial aircraft?The Transportation Security Administration and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have conducted reviews addressing the effect of electric stun devices on aircraft. Plus, various federal
