  • Abstract:
    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), within the Department of

    Transportation (DOT), is responsible for promoting safety in civil air

    transportation. General Accounting Office (GAO) and DOT's Office of Inspector

    General review FAA's safety programs, and the National Transportation Safety

    Board (NTSB) investigates aviation accidents. The three organizations make

    recommendations to FAA aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of

    FAA's activities and functions and at improving aviation safety. This report

    focuses on two questions.

    1) What has FAA's overall record been in responding to, agreeing with, and

    implementing significant recommendations concerning aviation safety made by

    GAO, DOT's Inspector General and the from 1990 through 1994?

    2) To what extent have GAO's specific recommendations in the areas of aircraft

    certification, airline inspections, and oversight of foreign carriers and

    NTSB's recommendations concerning safety on runways been fully implemented? 63p.
