Abstract : This is the first commuter air carrier safety symposium held by the FAA. The objective is to review the significant problems which are inseparable from safety issues. Most of the accidents which have occurred in the last several years have involved recurring contributing factors--in operations, maintenance, and training--and most are truly avoidable. The program is directed toward a listening session and regulatory overview; the industry presented its perspectives with reliability, and air-worthiness; human factors considerations in accident prevention; and the prospects of, or needs for, airport and airway development for commuter service.
