I love this! Great Info!
I have always been interested in what the NTSB does and the process of becoming an investigator. I would like to listen to an interview with a current air safety investigator and their path to the NTSB, what is their daily job consist of? Also, what is it like to be part of an accident investigation and what would be a good background for someone that would want to do the job?
I enjoyed it so far. It would be interesting to hear about a case study the who’s, why’s, future solutions, etc...
