NTSB Announces Forum To Improve General Aviation SAR

Will Concentrate On Federal SAR Regulations, Policies, And Procedures

The NTSB announced Thursday that it will hold a forum focused on general aviation search and rescue operations on July 17 and 18, 2012. In the U.S., following the crash of a GA airplane, inland searches for the aircraft are conducted by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center, who are supported by numerous Federal, state, local, and volunteer organizations.

The forum will concentrate on examining the regulations, policies, and procedures at a Federal level and serve as a platform to facilitate dialog between search organizations, technology manufacturers, and industry groups on the issues currently impacting the general aviation community. Additionally, the forum will spend a second day discussing emerging technologies and how they may shape the future of general aviation search and rescue.

The two-day forum is being chaired by NTSB Chairman Deborah A. P. Hersman and all five Board Members will participate. Panelists participating in the forum will represent government and industry. "Search and rescue can often mean the difference between life and death," said Chairman Hersman. "Unfortunately, every year we see delays in the detection and location of crashed aircraft due to outdated equipment and a failure to coordinate information and assets."

The NTSB has issued more than two dozen safety recommendations on search and rescue, conducted safety studies addressing ways to improve search and rescue operations and even included general aviation safety on the Most Wanted List of transportation improvements.

A detailed agenda and list of participants will be released closer to the date of the event.
