With the recent string of helicopter accidents that have occurred throughout the country, it is time for U.S. helicopter pilots to step up to the challenge of providing safe aviation transportation for themselves and their passengers.
American Airlines, which filed for bankruptcy protection last November, has had another spate of bad press and potentially life threatening incidents on its Boeing 757 airplanes. According to reports, the seats came loose on at least three flights while in the air and the speculation is that unhappy employees may be to blame. A spokesperson for the airline said it is inspecting eight of its aircraft that share the same or similar seat construction. The first incident happened on a flight between Vail, Colorado and Dallas-Fort Worth International late last month and two other instances of seats becoming loose happened later that same week.
