Board Meeting On The Topic Will Be Webcast

The National Transportation Safety Board will be holding a public board meeting March 23, 2021, 9:30 a.m. (EST), to consider a draft report on recommendations for the implementation of stricter regulatory requirements for some types of revenue passenger-carrying general aviation operations.

The NTSB has a long history of concerns about the safety of various revenue passenger-carrying operations, including sightseeing flights conducted in hot air balloons, helicopters, and other aircraft and parachute jump flights. These operations are not subject to the same maintenance, airworthiness, and operational requirements as other commercial flight operations.

The five-member board will consider the need for broader oversight and additional safety requirements for certain types of revenue passenger-carrying general aviation operations.

In keeping with established federal and local social distancing guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, while also ensuring the NTSB’s compliance with the Government in the Sunshine Act, the board meeting for this event will be webcast to the public, with the board members and investigative staff meeting virtually. There will be no physical gathering to facilitate the board meeting.

WHO: NTSB investigative staff and board members. WHAT: A webcast of a virtual board meeting. WHEN: Tuesday, March 23, 2021, 0930 (EST). HOW: The board meeting will be webcast only, there will not be a public gathering of NTSB investigative staff or board members. FMI: www.ntsb.gov, http://ntsb.windrosemedia.com/
