NTSB Hosting General Aviation Search and Rescue Forum

The July 17-18 event will be webcast. Participants will discuss emerging technologies useful for these operations.

The National Transportation Safety Board will host a public forum July 17-18 about general aviation search and rescue operations, examining federal regulations and procedures used in them, as well as emerging technologies that apply.

The event will be webcast, but NTSB has not yet posted the agenda or a list of participants. Visit http://www.capitolconnection.net/capcon/ntsb/ntsb.htm to access the webcast.

Chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman and all five board members, along with government and industry panelists, will participate, according to the board's announcement.

"Search and rescue can often mean the difference between life and death," said Hersman. "Unfortunately, every year we see delays in the detection and location of crashed aircraft due to outdated equipment and a failure to coordinate information and assets."
