Our “Call to Action Final Report” reflects the efforts of the FAA since June to further enhance safety for passengers who fly on any commercial airline regardless of whether it’s a major or regional carrier. The report lays out our initial actions to improve and revise pilot training and to develop an effective pilot fatigue rule. We also share what we have done to begin what must be an ongoing dialogue with airlines and unions to strengthen professionalism in the aviation industry and create mentoring programs for our nation’s pilots. This report is a snapshot of our work, which is by no means finished.  We will continue to aggressively push forward with these initiatives that we believe will raise the safety bar even higher.
