The article focuses on the proposal by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Congress to change the airline pilot training and hiring requirements after the Continental Connection/Colgan Air Flight 3407 crash. FAA and the Department of Transportation launched the Call to Action on Airline Safety and Pilot Training program. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) partly linked the crash to pilot fatigue. But Air Line Pilots Association president John Prater denounces the delay in the publication of the proposed fatigue rule.
