    Our regulators have to keep aviation safe to prevent accidents. FAA states that there has not been a major crash since 2009.

    My observations show that the layers of safety have eroded greatly and our regulators are not doing their jobs any longer. The lax in regulations, such as twin jet operations over water are a risk. Our maintnenance is now being done overseas in unmonitored repair stations to save money. Incidents are up, emergency returns are up. Near mid air collisions are up. The result will be the inevitable increase in the accident rate.

    Is aviation safe?
