The Federal Aviation Administration only requires it for air ambulances.

LOS ANGELES - U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein is calling for rules that crash-warning systems be required on commercial helicopters like the one that crashed in foggy weather, killing Kobe Bryant and eight other people.

The helicopter carrying Bryant did not have a device called the Terrain Awareness and Warning System that signals when an aircraft is in danger of hitting ground.

The Federal Aviation Administration only requires it for air ambulances.

Last week, U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman of Los Angeles introduced a bill requiring the FAA to mandate the devices as part of new safety standards.
