Abstract : Criminal Acts Against Civil Aviation Since 1986, the Federal Aviation Administration's Office of Civil Aviation Security has been publishing an annual report entitled Criminal Acts Against Civil Aviation. This report is a compilation of criminal incidents against civil aviation aircraft and interests worldwide. As in last year's publication, the 1994 issue contains feature articles and geographic overviews. Incidents are summarized in the overviews, and the feature articles focus on specific aviation-related issues or case histories. There is also a section in which incidents are compared for the 5-year period, 1990 to 1994. Charts, graphs, and maps appear throughout the publication. New to this year's edition is a Product Survey, which appears on the last page of the booklet. This questionnaire can be separated and returned. The information contained in this publication is derived from a variety of foreign and domestic sources. In many cases, however, specific details of a particular incident, especially those occurring outside the United States, may not be available. While the FAA makes every effort to provide complete and accurate information, it is not always possible to verify accounts of some incidents. The FAA maintains records of aircraft hijackings, bombing attacks, and other significant criminal acts against civil and general aviation interests worldwide, which are used to compile this report. Offenses such as these represent serious threats to aviation safety and, in those incidents involving U.S. air carriers or facilities outside the United States, are often intended as symbolic attacks against the United States.
