‘War on Error’ Waged in Wichita

 - October 31, 2007, 6:23 AM

The 11th annual Safety Standdown–sponsored by Bombardier Aerospace, NBAA, the FAA and the NTSB–concluded late last month in Wichita. This year’s “War on Error” was expanded to a three-day general session, preceded by optional one-day workshops on Monday. The annual event is free to attendees. This year marked the first time the Safety Board cosponsored the seminar. NTSB chairman Mark Rosenker praised the fact that “corporate jets flown by professional crews under Part 91 have accident rates that are comparable to scheduled air carriers,” but added, “There is always room for improvement.”
