As 10th Anniversary Approaches, Flight 3407 Families Frustrated with Continued Delays by DOT, FAA in Implementing Pilot Records Database
Call on Chao, Elwell to Provide Leadership in Rule Making Process on Critical Safety Initiative
Buffalo, New York – January 29, 2019 – With the 10 year anniversary of the tragic regional airline crash just weeks away, the ‘Families of Continental Flight 3407’ expressed their disappointment with repeated delays by DOT and FAA in the implementation process of the Pilot Records Database (PRD). This common-sense bipartisan reform, designed to ensure that air carriers have full access to a pilot’s complete training record when making a hiring decision, has the full support of the airline industry. Unfortunately, the target date for the release of this rule has pushed back four times since August 2017, and is now currently slated for this May.
