    National Transportation Safety Board says First Officer, Captain Actions, Aviation Industry Practices, Led to Fatal Atlas Air Crash | site |



    (July 14, 2020) - - Today, July 14, 2020, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) published the following information:

    ​WASHINGTON (July 14, 2020) — The National Transportation Safety Board determined during a public board meeting held Tuesday that Atlas Air flight 3591 crashed in Trinity Bay, Texas, because of the first officer’s inappropriate response to an inadvertent activation of the airplane’s go-around mode, resulting in his spatial disorientation that led him to place the airplane in a steep descent from which the crew did not recover.

    The accident happened Feb. 23, 2019, when the Atlas Air Boeing 767 cargo jet entered a rapid descent from about 6,000 feet and impacted a marshy bay about 40 miles from Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The captain, first

    National Transportation Safety Board calls for Renewed Road Safety Effort as Nation Reopens | site |


    (May 18, 2020) - - Today (May 18, 2020), the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) published the following information: WASHINGTON (May 18, 2020) — The National Transportation Safety Board is calling on Americans to practice highway safety with the same sense of responsibility they applied to reducing the spread of the coronavirus when they take to the nation’s roads as the country continues to reopen. In a “normal” year, more than 36,000 Americans are killed on our roads. While it is too early to tell what will happen to highway crash and fatality trends in the year of the pandemic, the desire to return to normality will increase the number of drivers on the road and that increases risk for highway users. “The number of traffic fatalities was a crisis before the pandemic,” said Robert L. Sumwalt, chairman of the National Transportation Safety Boar...

    Thank you for having me. Going back to my time in Indiana designing health care plans, I have always valued the knowledge and expertise that agents and brokers bring to the table, because they have front line experience. In this town, policy experts are a dime a dozen, but you all understand the healthcare system in a more concrete way. You see the impact of policy and know how it affects real people. Many of these people are our Medicare and exchange beneficiaries,...
