To address issues that arose in a fatal crash three years ago, the U.S. government has proposed increasing the required amount of experience and training for airline pilots, reports Bloomberg.
The proposed changes result from the February, 12, 2009, crash of a regional turboprop plane that was blamed on pilot errors. The plane crashed just outside of Buffalo, New York and killed one man on the ground and everyone on board.
Under the proposed rule, co-pilots would be required to log at least three times more flight hours for certification than under what's currently mandated, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
In 2010, Congress ordered the FAA to update its requirements for airline pilots to better prepare them for flying in difficult conditions, such as icing or an unforeseen emergency.
Following the accident, Congress ordered the FAA to make several safety improvements. In response to one of those mandates, the agency issued rules on Dec. 21 requiring passenger airline pilots to get more rest.
Congress also ordered the agency to make broader changes in pilot training and to establish a mentoring program for new pilots. The FAA has not issued rules in those areas.
