In a little more than a week following the crash, two more fatal collisions involving float planes have occurred in Alaska.
On Monday, a passenger and the pilot of a Beaver commuter floatplane — also operated by Taquan Air — were killed when the aircraft crashed in Metlakatla Harbor. Taquan has since voluntarily suspended operations until further notice.
In the latest crash, a year-old man died after he became trapped inside a small plane that crashed in Prince William Sound on Tuesday. Those recommendations include implementing safety management systems, recording and analyzing flight data and ensuring pilots receive controlled-flight-into-terrain avoidance training. Travellers should have an equivalent level of safety, regardless of the nature of the flight for which they paid.

The NTSB said that could take between one and two years to complete. Preliminary reports on the other two recent crashes in Alaska are set to be released in the coming days.
