The fatal accident of a 10-seat plane in Montana last year has prompted the NTSB to ask for a regulation that would require all passengers, including small children, to have their own seat belts. The NTSB made the recommendation in August. "We strongly believe one seat, one person," said Nora Marshall, chief of the survival factors unit at the safety board. Meanwhile, an FAA spokeswoman said the agency will consider the regulation but has no plans to change its current rules.
