From the Last Few Days: Sept 2

Two FAA safety inspectors were in a helicopter crash yesterday, in Jackson, Mississippi. One died and one remains in critical condition (via WMC-TV). The NTSB is investigating.

The NTSB issued new recommendations yesterday, regarding emergency medical helicopter operations. USA Today has a nice summary.

The FAA has reached an agreement with Southwest Airlines, regarding their use of unauthorized parts. While the parts will remain in use, for now, they will be closely monitored and replaced before the end of the year (via Aviation Week).

The NTSB announced today that they will offer a two day training for communications professionals, in late October. The course will focus on effectively managing communications following a major aircraft accident.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a tweet today from @LiveWireTest
