FAA approves new guidelines for pilots

Washington, D.C. - More than four years after Colgan Air Flight 3407 crashed outside Buffalo, the FAA has approved new standards for commercial pilots.

The requirements include more training on how to handle and recover from an aerodynamic stall.

51 people were killed in the 2009 crash. Families of the victims pushed the FAA to make changes after an investigation revealed that the pilots did not respond properly to warnings of stalling.

The organization said that the change is the largest it has made to pilot training in 20 years.
