PANEL DISCUSSION: THE EFFECTS OF ECONOMICS ON AVIATION SAFETY

This panel examined some economic factors which affect commercial aviation safety. These include fluctuating oil prices, recessionary trends, the Graham Rudman Hollings Deficit Reduction Act, the lack of access to the Aviation Trust Fund, product liability, and the Aviation Deregulation Act of 1978. The analysis focused on the present deregulated environment as the overriding economic factor and viewed the others as perturbations which further aggravate the safety of the system.
