Navy announces aviation 'safety pause' to review risk-management and training after a spate of crashes

A Marine Osprey crashed June 8 in the California desert, killing five Marines during a training exercise. Over 40 people have died in Osprey crashes since 1991, according to the Washington Post. 

As a result of the crash, the Commander of Naval Air Forces directed all non-deployed Navy aviation units to conduct a “safety pause” on June 13 in order to review risk-management practice and training in dangerous situations, the Air Force announced.
