The Committee would strongly encourage everyone to view the PBS FRONTLINE episode on the state of the passenger aviation industry, with its focus on the Colgan Air crash of February 2009.
We have linked to the online presentation in our BLOGROLL to the left as well as the transcript of the entire program.
We will present this without editorial review and encourage you to draw your own conclusions. It is the opinion of The Committee that PBS depicted the state of the industry with complete accuracy.
Take the time to view this. Your life depends on it.
UPDATE: PBS “FRONTLINE” has a companion piece regarding the dangerous trends to outsourcing the maintenance of your airplane to China, Central America, and largely unregulated and unsupervised operations inside the United States. We would encourage you to view this piece and realize that outsourcing your safety in the interests of corporate profits knows no bounds.
