Pilot gloves, safety belts and helmets are among the items that were recalled by the North Carolina Department of Public Safety on Monday after two people died in a crash involving two aircraft in the state’s north.
The FAA has said there were no other injuries in the crash on Sunday.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol said the pilot and the co-pilot were ejected from the plane, and the pilots were pronounced dead at the scene.
The pilot died of non-life threatening injuries, and co-owner of the aircraft, Joshua Mims, and his wife were taken to a hospital, authorities said.
North Carolina Gov.
Roy Cooper, a Democrat, called for the recall of all the items, including the gloves and safety belts.
The agency said it was also sending a letter to retailers urging them to make sure pilots and coach are wearing safety belts, and to notify customers about their responsibilities if they see someone wearing a safety belt while flying.
