It seems as though private aircraft have been crashing a lot more lately than before. Perhaps it is something that has to do with the training of these pilot or perhaps not. In any event, I wonder what needs to be done.

You won't see any major "rewrite" in the rules affecting private planes in the wake of these two accidents.
In fact, while the safety of general aviation has improved over the years, if you browse through the NTSB database, you'll find that there are usually between one and five plane accidents per day [Edited 2004-01-23 07:45:04]
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

They won't rewrite the rules of private aviation any more than they'll rewrite the rules of driving simply because dozens of people manage to dispose of themselves every day for being idiots on the road.
