Board Member Homendy, The NTSB doesn’t pay you enough to deal with the media.

I've learned one thing today, reporters ask stupid questions over and over.

Wow she really threw the FAA under the bus three times there. Rightly so. Never seen them talk about recomendations in a on site media briefing before.

These NTSB folks must undergo rigorous training to avoid constant eye-rolling and facepalming while taking questions during these sessions. :-)

Yet another thorough briefing by my friends and former clients at the NTSB. You all are the best investigative body there is and you are held in high regard by me.

I love how Jennifer stuck to FACTS! Hopefully those reporters brush up on their questioning in the future.

The NTSB did a great job dealing with the questions. Tough job handled very well. I wish someone would have brought up the ceiling vs altitude and flying under Special VFR. None of that info and other eye witness accounts support the idea that the pilot did anything to maintain Special VFR cloud clearances.

I have no idea how Ms Homendy puts up with the nonsense from the reporters. She is a stronger character than I.

NTSB is very thorough in investigating full confidence in the investigation process

Lesson learned...
Make certain the helicopter pilot flying you around is experienced and practiced to transition between VFR and IFR quickly.

Those reporters just literally wasted 9/10 mins of the N.T.S.B. Great job to N.T.S.B.!

Never climb on an aircraft that has too many moving parts, that's all I'm saying

The aircraft was required to have a RADAR altimeter (Hight from ground) ADSB-OUT for flight specific information, airspeed, altitude, turn bank etc. Learn to ask the correct questions.
