Let them know who they should invite to the hearing. You already know that the union, the airlines, the ATA will spin it. Let them know who you think will give them straight unvarnished, unspun tetsimony.

Current line pilots, former line pilots, sleep experts, whatever.

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.), Chairman of the Aviation Operations, Safety, and Security Subcommittee in the Commerce Committee today said he will hold a series of hearings to investigate airline safety, given the “stunning” disclosures before the National Transportation Safety Board surrounding the crash of the Continental Connection Flight 3407 commuter plane near Buffalo, New York.

Working with Commerce Committee Chairman John Rockefeller, Dorgan said the first hearing on aviation safety will be held in early June.

“The disclosures about crew rest, compensation, training, and many other issues demonstrate the urgent need for Congress and the FAA to take actions to make certain the same standards exist for both commuter airlines and the major carriers,” Dorgan said. “The NTSB investigation has disclosed some very serious problems that need to be corrected immediately.”

“Safety in aviation has always been my top priority,” Rockefeller said. “The disclosures before the NTSB are disconcerting and require the FAA and Congress’ immediate attention, oversight and action. We must do all we can to protect American consumers and ensure safety in our skies.”

“With the tragic crash of Flight 3407 in Buffalo, we have seen how gaps in the existing airline safety system can have devastating consequences for the country’s communities and families,” Dorgan said. “The FAA has a responsibility to both impose and enforce the standards that will give the American air traveler confidence across all of our airline services.”
