The FAA Set To Conduct Reviews After Multiple Incidents
The review will include participants from the industries that are regulated and served by the Federal Aviation Administration.
Recently multiple aviation safety incidents have occurred and prompted the Federal Aviation Administration to conduct a review of the agency.
An FAA administrator said that they are experiencing the safest period in aviation history, but cannot be too careful because recent events have reminded them that they cannot become too comfortable and unaware.
The announcement comes after a technological breakdown led to the first nationwide airplane departure grounding since the attacks on 9/11. It also comes after two separate occasions where two aircrafts nearly collided at the runways of major U.S. airports.
One of the main focuses during the safety review will be determining whether there are other incidents that resemble ones that have occurred in recent weeks. It will also review ways to better integrate the FAA’s air traffic control arm into the agency’s broader safety efforts.
