Huerta to Pilots: "Safety!"

Monday, August 6, 2012 @ 8:00 AM

FAA Acting Administrator Michael Huerta, during his first trip to AirVenture, made it clear to general aviation pilots that safety is No. 1.

“We want them to know that the thing we care about most of all is safety,” he said.  “We want to know that every time they take the controls of their aircraft that they are safe.  That we’ve done everything that we can to ensure the safety of that particular flight and that particular aircraft and everything that goes with it and they’ve taken the appropriate level of responsibility to ensure that every one of their systems is completely safe.”

He said FAA officials are asking general aviation pilots to take time this summer to reassess their safety. “We all have our routines,” he added.  “We just want them to take some time to sit back and ask the question ‘Am I doing everything I can to maintain the maximum level of safety?’”
