Changes to NTSB Procedural Rules

On Oct. 16, the National Transportation Safety Board NTSB issued several changes to its procedural rules. The changes follow an earlier notice of proposed rulemaking and recent passage of the Pilot’s Bill of Rights. The stated changes “allow appeals to a federal district court, apply federal rules of evidence and civil procedure to NTSB proceedings, and allow parties to move to dismiss a complaint if the FAA fails to disclose its enforcement investigative report.” ARSA’s comments to the NPRM, which suggested changes to the standard of review concerning the emergency status of cases and changes to the language in the stale complaint rule, were not adopted in the final rule.
