GREETINGS! First, Here is an update from Washington, D.C. The United States
Congress passes an FAA reauthorization extension through July 3rd, following an inability to get long-term reauthorization
Secondly, U.S. House and Senate, Congressional leaders are urged by aviation groups to renew the 50 percent bonus depreciation on aircraft that expired in December.
Thirdly, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issues an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on lead in aviation gasoline, the first step in investigating the necessity of regulations for lead emissions from general aviation. Once published in the Federal Register, industry will have 60 days to comment; www.epa.gov.
Fourthly, Federal Aviation Administration calls on air carrier operators to create and enforce policies that will limit distractions in the cockpit and keep pilots focused on transporting passengers safely. Move stems from incident last October when pilots of Northwest 188 overflew their destination by 150 miles because they were using their laptop computers for personal activities, and lost situational awareness; www.faa.gov.
Fifthly, National Transportation Safety Board releases preliminary accident statistics for 2009 showing an overall decrease in U.S. civil aviation accidents that includes general aviation, and on-demand Part 135 operations, which had their lowest number of accidents in two decades. Total number of U.S. civil accidents decreased from 1,658 to 1,551 in 2009. Total fatalities also showed a decrease from 566 to 534; visit http://www.ntsb.gov/aviation/Stats.htm
