(Reuters) – A group of Democratic U.S. lawmakers on Thursday introduced legislation that would require new safety equipment on helicopters that carry six or more passengers in the wake of a crash that killed NBA star Kobe Bryant in January.
The new equipment includes terrain awareness and warning systems and crash-resistant flight data and voice recorders
