New York, NY–Last week closed with shocking information hitting American news sources about the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) www.faa.gov desire to bury information regarding the incidence of how often planes and birds collide. As reported by ABC News, the reluctance of the FAA, to provide pertinent information to American pilots, aviation personnel, passengers and consumers is alarming, since the recent heroic landing of US Airways flight 1549 by pilot, Captain Sully Sullenberger, into New York’s Hudson River, was due to engine failure from a bird strike.
American consumers and the world at large applauded the heroic splash landing of a well-trained U.S. Airways flight crew and are now baffled by the government’s refusal to provide pertinent airline safety information. The FAA has formally proposed, a federal aviation regulation, to seal information about the incidence of bird strikes and its connection with airplane crashes. Air travelers, pilots, flight personnel, and aviation employees have a right to education. Education is the foundation of awareness and safety promotion.
