Pilots who support the families of victims lost in Flight 3407 say the changes were comprehensive and addressed safety concerns in the cockpit.
But some of the legislation that passed nine years ago still isn’t implemented.
And there were some things that weren’t including that still have some pilots concerned.
The Airline Safety and Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2010 got off to a slow start.
An Inspectors General's audit report from 2013 found that the FAA was more than a year behind implementing many of the law’s requirements.
While most of the safety provisions, including crew rest requirements, limited duty times, and the first officer qualifications, are now in effect, a few items are still outstanding. Not all airlines have implemented mentorship programs.
The biggest outstanding issue is the pilot record database, which would require detailed information about a pilot’s records, including test results, certifications, and check rides.
