The comment period on the FAA’s proposed upgrades to cockpit voice and flight data recorders has been extended to June 28, the result of a request by the Aerospace Industries Association and the agency’s expectations that it will receive additional extension requests “based on the lack of comments” to date. At press time, the regulatory docket showed that about 40 comments have been submitted. The proposal is based on NTSB recommendations following several airline and corporate jet accidents in which information from recorders was incomplete, nonexistent or garbled. The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) alleges that the agency “failed to conduct even a cursory review of the feasibility and economic impact of the rule for aircraft operated under Parts 91 and 135.”
