    I always thought it was kinda strange the NTSB calls this list the most wanted? Many NTSB recommendations over the years would prevent safety failures that caused loss of life are ignored, yet the FAA ignores these recommendations and years go by with no change. Why!!

    The simple "why" is the cost/benefit analysis mandate. The "agency" over inflates the cost and under estimates the benefit so the manufacturers don't have to comply with the "most wanted" list. They are doing it right now with the "fuel cells" on the helicopters. They are "slow walking" things and "quietly" encouraging operators to "volunteer" making changes. Some changes won't ever be made because of the "cost/benefit" will make the airframe unairworthy if not done to satisfy a "new" rule.

    The "committee" is made up of "manufacturers and operators" with interest to minimize "cost". There are "no advocates" to maximize "benefits". The only way to get "advocates" is to get a "legislative person" to make a law "mandating" the reluctant "agency" to make a "rule".

    So, with the "cost/benefit" mandate, you can see why the "agency" chooses to do nothing until mandated by the "legislative branch". What a way to run a "railroad"!!!

    "Drain the Swamp" for safety!!! Give Safety Improvement some teeth!!
