Specifically, the NTSB recommended that the FAA should require en route inspections and observe ground training, flight training, and proficiency checks at all Part 135 on-demand charter operations, just as they do at Part 121 and Part 135 commuter operations. Also, the FAA should require that Part 135 on-demand charter operators that conduct dual-pilot operations establish and implement an FAA-approved crew resource management training program. The FAA also should convene a panel of specialists in aircraft design, aviation operations, and aviation human factors, including representatives from NASA, to determine if it would be feasible to require low-airspeed alert systems in airplanes engaged in commercial operations under Parts 121 and 135. If the panel finds it would be feasible, the FAA should establish requirements for low-airspeed alert systems, based on those findings.
