Most Wanted List - Related Safety Recommendations

We have also created a page to provide a listing of open NTSB recommendations​ most strongly associated with the 10 Most Wanted List (MWL) issues. The recommendations are grouped by each MWL issue. In addition to the recommendation number, classification status and recommendation text, each recommendation listed also contains a hyperlink to the NTSB’s safety recommendation database where additional detail about that specific recommendation can be found.​
