The NTSB sent the FAA three new safety recommendations in the wake of the Dec. 29, 2010 American Airlines incident at Jackson Hole Airport (JAC), Wyo. when a Boeing 757 ran off the end of the runway while landing. Recommendation A-12-44 requires operators of speedbrake-equipped aircraft to develop training that recognizes when speedbrakes do not automatically deploy on landing. A-12-45 will require new Part 25 aircraft to include a system that easily alerts pilots when speedbrakes do not deploy. A-12-46 will require Boeing to develop guidance for pilots when they experience an unintended thrust-reverser lockout.
