More on Colgan Crash – Now the Senate is Involved!
Check it out:
So let me understand; latent industry conditions decades old and NOW the politicians want to be involved? Why do I anticipate the hearings will be blame oriented and political? Why do these public servants not take action BEFORE something bad happens?
Investigations and politics are not good companions. I’d say let the NTSB do their job, the last thing we need is grandstanding for public consumption. If the politicians really want to do something useful for the industry how about they support and fund the modernization of the air traffic control system? This would improve safety, the economy, and the environment at the same time. Just my opinion.
