PBS’s Frontline Talks with Alumnus About Airline Safety

February 10, 2010
By Chris Richter

Alumnus Chris Monteleon ’68 was interviewed on Frontline last night (in the fifth segment, about two minutes in). The PBS program investigated safety issues associated with major airlines outsourcing flights to regional partners. Monteleon, who has worked as a Federal Aviation Administration inspector, raised questions about the operations of a regional airline he provided oversight of and charged that the FAA ignored his concerns. One of that airline’s planes crashed near Buffalo, N.Y., in February 2009, killing 50. You can learn more about Monteleon in The New York Times and in this NPR story.
