  • Abstract:
    This is the statement of Gerald L. Dillingham, Associate Director,

    Transportation and Telecommunications Issues, Resources, Community, and

    Economic Development Division, General Accounting Office, on the Federal

    Aviation Administration's (FAA) safety inspection program. FAA's Office of

    Flight Standards Service develops the federal aviation regulations that

    airlines must follow and prepares guidance on how FAA safety inspectors should

    perform inspections. This office also inspects commercial and general aviation

    aircraft, aircraft repair stations, schools for pilot training and maintenance,

    and pilots. These inspections serve as part of an early warning system to

    identify potential safety-related problems. Mr. Dillion's testimony draws on

    GAO work since 1987 on FAA's targeting of inspection resources and its

    inspector training. In addition, the GAO interviewed about 50 inspectors and

    their comments on training have been incorporated where relevant to the issues

    discussed in this testimony. The comments made by these inspectors are not

    projectable to FAA's entire inspection training program, but their views and

    ongoing work by the Department of Transportation's Inspector General (DOT IG)

    indicate that long-standing problems with inspector training continue to exist.
