public actions and decision accident report, NTSB studies their accident report
and conducts special investigation to implement safety standards through U.S. to

            NTSB is such an experience accident
investigation agency, that foreign agency calls NTSB for their expertise and
knowledge to assist for the investigation. The accident that NTSB chooses for
investigation is not just an ordinary accident but is selected for the purpose
of implementing it into reports for it to be used for studies for future
engineers about aviation safety and as well as inventing new ideas and projects
to prevent such accidents again.  


to manpower for NTSB, it is not possible for NTSB to investigate every accident
therefore aircraft accidents are separated into four categories range from
major investigation to limited investigation. Major investigation are conducted
in cases that involves large airlines or terrorism and as for limited investigation,
is mostly for light aircraft accidents that is reviewed by NTSB to investigate.
If the accident in huge NTSB as a special code to call “Go Team” that is a
group of people to rush to the crash site and assist in the investigation ASAP.
After all the investigation is done, all officers whom investigated has to
write a report and submit to NTSB for reviewing and for NTSB to compute a
finalize report that then will be shared with the public and companies or even
aviation schools for educational and training purposes. NTSB also makes a
safety recommendation after an accident finalize report to prevent such cases
again. This safety recommendation are then implemented in agency such as
Federal Aviation Agency (FAA), aircraft manufactures, airlines and air traffic
controllers. (Houston, 2017)

experts engineers or officers specialized for investigations are the ones
granted permission to the accident investigation especially those whose

such as aircraft manufacturer, airline or the state of accident. All of this
does not have the right to join the investigation for the NTSB unless the
organization or personal is invited for it stated under the NTSB rules. (Dombroff,

the end of the investigation, all officers reports back to NTSB chairman for
preparation of a final report with each officer or engineer being asked to
