FAA Mandates Stall Training for Commercial Pilots

The final rule comes as a result of the Colgan Air 3407 crash in 2009 near Buffalo, N.Y., which killed 49 people on board and one person on the ground.

The Federal Aviation Administration announced it has finalized the rule intended to significantly advance how commercial air carrier pilots are trained. The rule comes as a result of the Colgan Air 3407 crash in 2009 near Buffalo, N.Y., which killed 49 people on board and one person on the ground.

The rule addresses a congressional mandate in the Airline Safety and Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2010 and will account for training that covers catastrophic events, which are rare.

The final rule requires a number of new training elements, including:

  • Ground and flight training that enables pilots to recover from aircraft stalls.
  • Air carriers will use data to track remedial training for pilots with performance deficiencies.
  • Training for more effective pilot monitoring.
  • Enhanced runway safety procedures.
  • Expanded crosswind training, including for wind gusts.
