For 12 years, the families of Flight 3407 have worked endlessly to keep us all safe while in the sky.
This Friday, they are celebrating a major milestone.
The Pilot Records Database was officially published Thursday.
By 2024, all air carriers are expected to have entered pilot records into the database.
The first victory for victims’ families was back in 2020. That’s when the Airlines Safety and Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act passed.
Their work was prompted by the cause of the 2009 crash that left 50 dead in Clarence Center. An NTSB report said the crash was due to pilot error and was avoidable.
