Last week the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) unveiled a plan to dramatically overhaul air carrier training for pilots, flight attendants, dispatchers, and all other flight crewmembers. Introduced as a supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking—the plan will revise the January 2009 proposal that the FAA issued, taking into consideration the Airline Safety and Federal Aviation Administration Act of 2010.
“The United States has the world’s safest aviation system, but we are continually seeking ways to make it even safer,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “This proposal will make U.S. pilots and other crewmembers even better-equipped to handle any emergency they may encounter.”
FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt said that, if approved, these would be the most significant changes to aircraft carrier training in 20 years.

The proposal notes that simulation training devices would factor heavily into crewmembers’ training exercises though the FAA says air carriers would experience minimal cost increases as a result of the extra training.
