NTSB to recommend installation of U.S. senators on every GA aircraft

WASHINGTON – Pleasantly surprised by the feverish, nonstop major-network news coverage of an aircraft accident in Alaska despite the fact that it involved a single-engine float plane manufactured in 1952 with a maximum passenger capacity of only 10, the NTSB today proposed that the FAA require one member of the U.S. Congress to be aboard every general aviation (GA) flight.

More than anything, it is educating the public about the dangers of GA in Alaska -- a little known fact outside the GA community.

how unnecessary, irresponsible, inappropriate, and thoughtless for a government agency to make this type of statement in connection with a tragic loss of life. Is this what taxes are being paid for, a completely insensitive NTSB spokesperson to mis-use their position and access to the media. Why couldn't they maturely make their point about increased regulatory and public interest in general aviation in a respectful manner. The only appropriate headline to read in this connection: "NTSB fires spokeperson". shameful! ... may the deceased rest in peace and their families find comfort.

I rarely agree with the NTSB, but this is fantastic.
