Abstract : On January 9 and 10, 1995, more than 1,000 industry, Government, and union aviation officials met in Washington, D.C. in an unprecedented working session to address aviation safety. A wide range of safety improvements were recommended. Secretary Pena committed to develop an action plan within 30 days that would detail DOT and FAA's response to these issues. This plan clearly reflects the underlying theme of the conference: Aviation safety is a shared responsibility. In a renewed commitment to this shared responsibility: Airlines are taking immediate, voluntary action to establish a safety office reporting to the CEO of every airline; In 1996, FAA will publish new regulations that require an independent flight safety department at every airline operating aircraft with more than nine passenger seats; and In March 1995, FAA will publish new regulations that require one level of safety for all air carriers operating aircraft with more than nine passenger seats.
