    The FAA Executive Director in DC John Duncan has come out with a new approach for the FAA. It seems 60 minutes has aired a show on the FAA and Allegiant Airlines and that maybe something is wrong with FAA oversight of the operator.

    Allegiant has had over 100 incidents in less then 2 years consisting of engine failures, aborted take-off's, smoke in the cockpit, system failures and emergency returns. 100 is a big number and Congress has sent letters to the FAA looking for answers after the 60 minutes show aired last month.

    ...yep, compliance philosophy is what they do first now. As long as the entity is proactive with the fix, they skate on the violations. Congress won't look too hard unless something catastrophic happens. This is no different than any other crisis! Just wonder who will have to testify before congress when the "big one" happens?!!

    FAA has all kinds of new departments and managers in place for aviation safety. So what is it going to take ?

    ... probably, like any other time, it will take a major catastrophic event. It will take congressional hearings and people will quietly retire or be put into a broom closet counting paperclips. Until then, they will say they are following the 2012 reauthorization. They will also say they are becoming streamlined by going from a geographic to a function based administration. Furthermore, they will say they will be standardized by only having a few top Kings making decisions instead of the reagions having input.

    Be proactive, "Drain the Swamp" before the "big one" happens!!
