NEW YORK STATE -- The Federal Aviation Administration releases new pilot training rules as part of Federal Aviation Safety Laws created following the 2009 crash of Flight 3407 in Western New York.
The new rules require ground and flight training that enables pilots to prevent and recover from aircraft stalls and upsets.
It also makes air carriers use data to track remedial training for pilots with performance deficiencies, like failing proficiency checks or doing poorly during flight training.
Training for more effective pilot monitoring, enhanced runway safety procedures, and expanded crosswind training are also among the new rules.
The rules were supposed to be released in October, but were delayed due to the government shutdown.
