National Transportation Safety Board

"Flight operations in Alaska are diverse, with a challenging environment, such as rough terrain, adverse weather, and unique air transportation requirements. Due to the large geographic area and lack of other forms of transportation, aviation is often the only way to traverse much of the State. These challenges increase the risks to safe flight operations." Testimony of James LaBelle, Chief Northwest Field Office National Transportation Safety Board before the Transportation Subcommittee Committee on Appropriations United States Senate Regarding Aviation Safety in Alaska December 14, 1999
