"This being normal does not mean it's safe," she said.
The National Transportation Safety Board on Tuesday concluded a nearly two-year investigation into the Feb. 16, 2005, crash of a Cessna Citation 560 jet near Pueblo. The board found:
* The crash was caused by "the flight crew's failure to effectively monitor and maintain airspeed and comply with procedures for deice boot activation on their approach to Pueblo, Colorado, which led to an aerodynamic stall."
* A contributing factor was "the (Federal Aviation Administration's) failure to establish adequate certification requirements for flight into icing conditions, which led to the inadequate stall warning margin provided by the airplane's stall warning system."
