NTSB to Consider Stricter Part 91 Regulations

Government Relations
Friday, February 26, 2021

By press release, the National Transportation Safety Board announced its intent to consider stricter regulatory requirements for some types of revenue passenger-carrying general aviation operations. The safety board included “parachute jump flights” among the other general aviation operations it plans to discuss during a virtual meeting on March 23. Current FAA regulations do not require skydiving flights to hold a commercial operating certificate. USPA opposed the NTSB grounds for additional regulation in a February 12 letter to the safety board, which described declining fatal skydiving aircraft accidents along with our analysis of the effectiveness of previous NTSB recommendations. A link to the webcast will be available shortly before the start of the meeting at http://ntsb.windrosemedia.com/
