FAA allegedly cutting corners
Washington Times |
"A government watchdog agency yesterday accused the Federal Aviation Administration of not being tough enough in protecting the safety of the nation's airline passengers... The GAO said 29% of safety violations, or 55,877 cases, involved security issues, although it did not explain what kinds of security lapses occurred or specify how many took place after the September 11 attacks. Another 21% of the violations involved flight operations and 15% involved maintenance; the rest fell into a variety of categories. They were spread among nearly 200,000 FAA enforcement actions from 1993 to 2003... The FAA does not evaluate its own enforcement actions and, therefore, has no way of knowing whether they are effective."
