Ravn Air Group has postponed a community meeting it was set to hold in Unalaska this month.

Ravn and Alaska Airlines had been planning to hold a public meeting on the island in early December amid intense community criticism over their handling of air service in the wake of October's fatal plane crash.

After weeks of uncertainty in the wake of last month's fatal plane crash, RavnAir Group has released flight schedules between Unalaska and Anchorage through May 31, 2020.

The PenAir flight that crashed at Unalaska's airport last month, killing one passenger, landed amid unfavorable, shifting winds, according to an initial federal report released Friday.

It was also captained by a pilot with relatively little experience at the controls of the Saab 2000 plane he was flying, the report said.

While Ravn Air Group has said it plans to resume Unalaska's regular flights sometime next week, airline officials haven't released any further details since they made that announcement one week ago.

"I'm not real confident in their date line," said City Councilor Shari Coleman.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating the cause of this month's plane crash in Unalaska, which killed one passenger and injured more than a dozen others. 

While the full inquiry is expected to take a year or more, the federal agency is planning to release a preliminary report within a few weeks.

KUCB's Laura Kraegel spoke with Clint Johnson, the chief of the NTSB's Alaska Regional Office.
