Default FAA LIES will be exposed on April 3rd

WASHINGTON FAA officials overseeing Southwest Airlines
ignored safety violations, leaked sensitive data to the
carrier and tried to intimidate two inspectors to head off
investigations, according to previously undisclosed
allegations by the inspectors.

The Federal Aviation Administration inspectors are scheduled
to testify April 3 before the House Transportation
Committee. They say others in the agency allowed Southwest
to skip critical safety inspections for years. The charges
are in government documents provided to USA TODAY

Did you guys hear that the FAA is doing CFI checkrides now?

That'll save CFI candidates about $500.

Haven't you always had to go through the FSDO for the initial CFI
ride, or am I missing something?

Not too good for the FAA

The FAA Management idiots looked like a deer in the headlights

Congress's stance toward the industry has shifted from
benevolence after the terrorist attacks in 2001 to a more
combative approach after a string of passenger disruptions
and recent revelations about lax oversight.

Oberstar said on Wednesday that his criticism was "an effort
to get them back on course, to being the gold standard in
the world for aviation safety oversight and maintenance
oversight, and to re-establish a safety mind-set and culture
with the agency, instead of this coddling of the industry."

There has not been a crash of a big jet in the United States
since an American Airlines plane broke up in flight over New
York in November 2001 a point repeatedly made by federal
administrators and airline executives as proof that the air
system is safe.

That attitude could be dangerous, however, Oberstar said.
"Time passes, and 'Oh, we haven't had an accident, and now
we can be cozy and play patty-cake with the airlines,' " he
said, describing what he fears could be the attitude of the
FAA "As soon as you do that, you lose the enforcement
mind-set, and you lose the sense of the margin of safety."
