Posted July 11th, 2014 @ 11:28am

Clarence N.Y.- Nearly 5-years after a plane crash near Buffalo, new training standards could be coming for airplane pilots.

 The FAA wants new safety standards for flight simulators to avoid deadly crashes like the crash in Clarence in 2009.

 Fifty people died when continental Flight 3407 crashed into a home.

 Investigators say during the flight, there was a stall warning, but a poor reaction by the captain caused the pilots to lose control of the plane.
