The National Transportation Safety Board will hold its air cargo safety forum March 30 and 31, at its NTSB Academy in Ashburn, Va. The event - which some air cargo industry officials fear will bring yet another government agency into the air cargo regulatory regime - will include presentations on air cargo operations, equipment maintenance, human factors and regulatory requirements. The event is open to the public. "The goal of this forum is to intensify the industry-government dialogue on air cargo safety and to help advance the important work currently being done in this area," NTSB Chairman Ellen G. Engleman said. "We need to do all we can to ensure the highest safety standards are maintained." For more information about the air cargo forum, contact the NTSB by mail at Cargo Forum, NTSB Academy, 45065 Riverside Parkway, Ashburn, Va., 20147, or by phone at 571-223-3900.
