FAA Executive Announces Modified Approach to Enforcement

Director of Flight Standards John Allen’s announcement of a new approach to compliance is welcomed and appropriate. John told the Aircraft Charter Safety Foundation’s annual Air Charter Safety Symposium that he is “trying to change a culture within the Flight Standards Service.” Specifically, he intimated that the first tool of his 1,500 inspectors is not to open his ticket book and begin to violate a “problem.”
