FAA Regulations Don't Apply to All Helicopters

Like airplane transportation, helicopter transportation is regulated by laws that govern how helicopters must be manufactured and maintained. These helicopter regulations, however, do not apply across the board to all helicopters meaning, some helicopters are still manufactured that do not comply with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards. It's a situation that illustrates how some manufacturers put profits ahead of safety, and it shows how helicopter manufacturers unnecessarily put lives at risk.

Drone Crash at Wedding Leads to Lawsuit

A drone crash lawsuit was filed by two wedding guests who say they suffered permanent physical injuries and emotional injuries after a drone crashed into them during the event. The guests, Kneena Ellis and Kelly Eaton, filed the lawsuit against the groom and the event company that planned the wedding reception. Both defendants claim they are not to blame for the accident, but the plaintiffs say the groom should never have been allowed to fly the drone in the first place.

Senator Thune Grills FAA on NextGen Program

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) faced tough questions from Republican Senator John Thune, chair of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. Thune wrote a letter to the FAA outlining his concerns about the agency's NextGen program, which he believes is not being rolled out in a timely manner. NextGen was designed to update aircraft tracking in order to prevent mid-air collisions while providing economic benefits to the industry, but after its launch almost 10 years ago, it has already cost billions in funding and could take more than a decade to complete, according to some reports.
