Each year, a large number of aircraft crashes that occur in the United States are attributed to errors made by pilots or flight crews. The Aviation Accident Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is hoping to reduce the number of crashes in the future by implementing several new rules and regulations.

According to an article provided by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, the new rules will focus on ensuring pilots possess the proper skills needed to safely operate aircrafts. This will include more strenuous training and better remedial education for pilots. Some of the particular areas where pilots will receive more training include stall recoveries and navigating through different types of wind patterns.

The National Transportation Safety Board says it is currently reviewing the new set of laws to ensure they cover all aspects of the numerous safety recommendations and advisories that have been made to the FAA in recent years. Many of the recommendations came in the wake of a tragic Commercial Airline Accident that occurred in February of 2009 near the city of Buffalo, New York.

The law firm and its team of attorneys recognize the importance of training in preventing aircraft accidents and are hopeful the new regulations are effective in preventing future crashes from occurring.
