The government has issued new airline pilot training requirements to address safety issues raised by past accidents. A regional airline crash that happened nearly five years ago that killed 50 people got the ball rolling that resulted in the needed change. The rule, issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), requires pilots to receive more training on preventing and recovering from an aerodynamic stall in which a plane slows to the point that it loses lift.
The rule also requires airlines to track data on how well pilots perform and orders remedial training for pilots deficient in flying skills. Other areas addressed by the rule include the monitoring of aircraft systems by pilots, enhanced runway safety procedures and expanded training for dealing with crosswinds. The changes are among the most significant to pilot training requirements in decades.
