    • 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.
