Aviation Safety

 

The tragic 2009 crash of Continental Connection Flight 3407 in Western New York highlighted glaring weaknesses in our nation’s aviation safety regulations. Working with the Families of Flight 3407 and the Western New York Congressional delegation, Brian was a strong voice for the passage of critical reforms to make our skies safer. After the Airline Safety and Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2010 was signed into law, Brian fought to ensure that the Federal Aviation Administration implemented a number of aviation safety reforms in the areas of pilot fatigue and pilot and crewmember training requirements in full and on time. Brian continues to honor those lost in the crash and the hard work of their families in the wake of the crash by supporting efforts to make the skies safer for the flying public.
