  • Abstract:
    Testimony of Gerald L. Dillingham, Associate Director, Transportation Issues,

    Resources, Community, and Economic Development Division before the Subcommittee

    on Aviation, Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, U.S. Senate on

    the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) oversight of repair stations that

    maintain and repair aircraft and aircraft components. In recent years, FAA's

    oversight of repair stations has become a matter of concern, in part because

    the work performed by repair stations has been identified as a factor in several

    aircraft accidents. This testimony discussed three main issues: (1) the

    practice of using individual inspectors in repair station inspections; (2) the

    condition of inspection documentation; and (3) current FAA actions to improve

    the inspection process. 10p.
