Well this certainly covers the gamut of the ways that commercial pilots have killed their passengers the past decade or so. The last major crashes we’ve had in America were in 2001 (caused by terrorism and, in one case, by some odd rudder inputs) and it would appear that those issues have already been addressed.
And here’s something to ponder:
“The agency says the costs of implementing the rule, in part due to the simulator upgrades, will be as much as $354 million, while the benefits of accidents averted will be $689 million.”
It seems that the feds have assigned a dollar figure to the value of your life. Maybe it’s $10,000,000 or so.
How do you feel about that?
Anyway, I feel pretty good about this push from the FAA
