FAA sets new rules to avoid pressurization problems
from The Wall Street Journal
Federal aviation regulators have mandated enhanced safety equipment and emergency procedures to prevent dangerous pressurization problems on more than 700 older Boeing 737 airliners. The Federal Aviation Administration final rule, released on recently, aims to help cockpit crews of such jets operated by U.S. carriers swiftly identify and react to in-flight malfunctions that can mean a loss of cabin pressure depriving pilots of oxygen. The directive appears to be the final step in implementing various lessons learned from the much-publicized 2005 crash of a Helios Airways Boeing 737 after its pilots passed out from lack of oxygen.
