May 13, 2014


In a CNN column co-authored by  former NTSB head Jim Hall, O’Neill and Associates Senior Vice President Peter Goelz  shared three ways to prevent planes from ever vanishing again.

Goelz and Hall stressed that flight recorder “pingers” need to be upgraded, all ETOPS aircraft must be equipped with deployable black boxes, and all ETOPS aircraft need to be connected to a “handshake” monitoring service offered by Boeing, Airbus or the major engine manufacturers or to some other commercial service like the Automated Flight Information Reporting System that tracks the aircraft at all times.
