Congress seems to be getting fed up with the slow pace of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) rollout.

The NTSB wants the FAA to monitor the communication contingency plans of all Gulf of Mexico operators. The recommendation follows the Board’s probe of a 2005 Houston Helicopters S-76A accident in the Gulf, in which the pilots did not report their positions via satphone to the company, via radio to other aircraft, or by filing a flight plan with FSS. As a result, their rescue was delayed by nearly eight hours.
