In Brown’s letter, he said in part, that the “AMA has always believed that the best, and perhaps the only, way to successfully manage the recreational community is through a community-based set of safety guidelines and the combined efforts of the FAA and AMA.” An investigator on the team working to determine what happened to AirAsia Fight 8501 says that the Cockpit Voice Recorder captured the sound of stall warnings and the pilots working to regain control of the Airbus A320.
