The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) is conducting a survey of regulated aviation businesses affected by the lack of FAA standardization on regulatory interpretations. “We have launched the survey in response to the Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) review of inconsistencies in how field inspectors interpret and apply requirements on regulated entities,” Jacqueline Rosser, director of regulatory affairs, told AIN. NATA will compile the survey data and provide a summary of the results to the GAO. The results will be available on the association’s Web site. The association is hopeful that the final GAO report will prove the significance of the issue, highlight a need for change within the FAA and propose solutions that can address the problem. The survey is available via a link on the NATA homepage. “The identity of all participants will be kept confidential unless the submitter specifically agrees to be contacted and to have his information used in an identifiable way,” Rosser said.
