Abstract : The Secretary of Transportation, in an effort to assure the continuation of adequate safety standards in the transportation industry, appointed a task force within the Department to conduct an intense safety review of all forms of transportation. The Secretary took steps to assure the continuing effectiveness of the FAA safety inspection and surveillance programs by directing the FAA to: (1) Increase the number and frequency of air carrier inspections; (2) Conduct a series of short-notice inspections into any and all safety-related areas associated with air carrier operations; (3) Conduct inspections of all segments of the industry including established and new entrant air carriers, commuters and large air carriers, flight and ground operations, and maintenance procedures and records and (4) Correct specific problems identified during the course of these inspections. The following report describes the 90-day inspection operation and discusses the results and general findings of the inspections. More detailed information about the organization, approach and inspections is included in appendices. Specific findings in the case of individual airlines have been discussed with those airlines. Where deficiencies were detected, they were addressed.
