Congressman DeSaulnier Includes Safety Provisions To “Prevent Near-Miss Incidents And Protect The Flying Public”

Congressman Mark DeSaulnier announced four provisions he authored to prevent near-miss aircraft incidents were included in the Securing Growth and Robust Leadership in American Aviation Act (H.R. 3935) to reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for five years, which passed in the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 351-to-69.

“Following the near-miss incident that occurred at San Francisco International Airport in 2017 when a plane almost landed on a taxiway occupied by four aircraft putting more than 1,000 passengers at risk, I’ve been working to pass aviation safety reforms,” said Congressman DeSaulnier. “I am proud to have worked closely with Captain “Sully” Sullenberger on these initiatives that would help to address surface safety risks and prevent near-misses, which are more critical than ever as there have been over 900 runway incursions so far in 2023 alone.”

DeSaulnier’s provisions would create a Task Force on Human Factors in Aviation Safety to review and provide recommendations on pilot operations and training; identify the need for airport surface surveillance and safety systems; require data analysis of safety incidents to find and address underlying patterns; and ensure protections for pilots in the use of cockpit voice recorders for safety investigations to help learn more when incidents do occur.

That has been worked out since Mark was a child. What has Buttijudge been doing? We have a problem of not enough air traffic controllers. Too many flights and too many travelers.

Buttigieg has been studying tarmac instances of airplanes running into the back of other airplanes. He’s determined to get to the root cause.

2023 – 2017 = 6 years and just getting around to it now ? ? ?
So FAA and NTSB can’t handle it ?
An more bureaucracy will make it gooder ?

A lot of the items listed are already in place or a work in progress. Not mentioned were cockpit cameras. If installed, they would be rendered ineffective by the pilots. Also missing from this article were details of the incident.

Air Canada was operating the flight in question. The runway closure was reported to all pilots and the incident occurred late at night. Fatigue was a factor in this case. Fatigue effects are and have been studied extensively. Often ignored are long duty days and unrealistic schedules.

The bureaucracy, redundancy, and waste in government is astounding and pitiful.
Does any one branch of government know what any other branches do? Or that other branches even exist?

Most of you do not remember when getting on an airplane was like getting on a greyhound bus. You bought your ticket. waited in line and got on in order and found a seat. Thats it.

You could pay cash, no one looked through your luggage, and you walked out the doors and up the portable steps they wheeled up to the plane.

In other news, a woman is robbed while taking her child out of the car seat. Why not address the crime in your district?

DeSourair doesn’t have the slightest clue regarding how to mitigate and solve the real problems plaguing the state and the country.

They simply don’t care. Individual robbery or beatings mean nothing to these people.
Now hate speech, that’s a big deal as it gets them press.

Misses and near misses are not really a problem. Nothing breaks and nobody gets hurt in a near miss.

More importantly, who the heck comes up with the titles on these bills? The Securing Growth and Robust Leadership in American Aviation Act? Try saying that ten times fast! They can’t even make a cool acronym out of that one.

Maybe they can get the drug manufacturers to name their bills. Something with lots of Zs, Qs, and Xs and short on vowels. Zrqixz sounds about right to me.

Isn’t a Near-miss really a Complete-miss. 🤓 Some things are just like chalk on a blackboard.

Wow…….even the Democrats don’t like this clown. Maybe he’s been feeding at the trough long enough and he’ll get fired…..FINALLY!.
