Robert Clifford Speaks out in San Francisco Chronicle Opinion Piece

For some 10 years, aviation safety advocates have been asking the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to equip all commercial aircraft with low air speed alerts, a technology that warns pilots with a loud oral warning that the speed of the plane is too slow. The FAA has not acted, despite the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) making that recommendation. Senior partner at Clifford Law Offices, Robert A. Clifford, also made the FAA aware of this need through his work in representing many families who lost loved ones on a Continental Connection flight to Buffalo, New York. The issue is raised once again in the crash of Asiana Flight 214 at San Francisco International Airport and Clifford wrote about it in an op-ed piece that was published in the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper on July 12, 2013.
