FAA Easing Pilot Troubles . . .

FAA launches a Consistency and Standardization Initiative —easing trouble for pilot errors

On January 4th at the airport managers association meeting, Mr. Jarrell Pratt of FAA, Balt. FSDO explained the Consistency and Standardization Initiative.

The initiative promotes safety with respectful, and professional services, a clear explanation of requirements, alternatives, and possible outcomes associated with safety violations.  “We are now easing some of our minor violations measures of corrective measures,” stated Mr. Pratt. Example: If a pilot violates air space rules with no accident or other aircraft’s involved, we will want to know why that violation took place. Is it because he can’t navigate, or maybe the pilot needs more training? Overall, the goal is to correct errors and promote safety rather than punish the pilot.
