I disclose my extensive background in aviation to establish my qualifications for giving my opinions regarding many facets of the aviation industry, including regulatory oversight by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). I also include true experiences concerning my personal aviation maintenance and pilot endeavors, which have provided me with additional experience. I share stories of aviation accidents and incidents to show how the FAA’s Aviation Safety Inspectors perform their duties and make safety recommendation.A couple of chapters deal with in-depth problems of existing regulations, including what I believe to be improper violations of aircraft mechanics working for airlines, the operation of unairworthy aircraft in revenue service, and the inadequate and useless program the FAA uses to perform it’s so called surveillance known as the Air Transportation Oversight System or ATOS for short.In the process I hope to expose the contempt and abuse of FAA management that I feel undermines the trust given them by the public. I feel the only reason any safety in aviation exists today is because of the integrity of the FAA inspectors that go above and beyond the call of duty to keep the public safe in spite of management and all of the ridiculous FAA policies and procedures and bad interpretations of the regulations. I must not forget all the great mechanics, pilots, flight attendants, and support people in the airline industry that also have the integrity to do their best to make aviation safe for the public under the broken system in which they are forced to work.
