Two plane crashes with small private aircraft within days of each other. I wonder if the FAA will be trying to rewrite the guidelines for private flight.

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

Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

For some reason, A.net cut off the rest of my post. Anyway here it is:

Fortunately, most are not fatal, although it isn't unusual at all to see several fatal accidents per week.<

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.
