FAA Working to Improve Aviation Safety in the United States

by | January 31st, 2014

In the wake of several recent aviation accidents, federal agencies have been scrambling to find ways to reduce the chances of crashes by improving safety standards. The Aviation Accident Attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain one way this goal is being achieved is by making pilots more aware of the dangers they face and educating them on how to prevent accidents before they happen.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is currently offering a course called, The Impact of Tire Maintenance on Aircraft Safety. The course is offered to pilots at no cost and covers the risks and consequences of improper aircraft tire maintenance.

Upon completing this course and others like it, participants will be awarded a certain number of credits that can be used to achieve different types and levels of accreditation.

Besides offering these courses to improve safety, the FAA is also cracking down on safety regulations in the United States and abroad. The agency recently downgraded India’s aviation safety rating after a review of the country’s recent accident history and safety standards.

The attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy applaud the efforts being made to improve Aviation Safety in the United States and are hopeful to see more similar actions in the future!
