New flight training requirements issued by FAA days after Asiana Airlines crash
- 250 The number of flight training hours that pilots previously needed to log before qualifying for a commercial pilot’s license, per Federal Aviation Administration standards.
- 1,500 The number of hours that pilots must now spend in flight training before qualifying for the same commercial license, thanks to new standards passed by the FAA just two days after Asiana Airlines Flight 214’s highly-publicized crash in San Francisco. source
EDIT: As pointed out by Alex Fitzpatrick below, it’s not a direct reaction to the crash; the Buffalo crash in 2009 was also taken into account.
