COMMERCIAL SAFETY REGULATIONS ARE AVOIDED BY SOME LARGE AIRCRAFT OPERATORS

Several methods are used by some private operators of large aircraft to avoid compliance with commercial safety regulations, and, in some cases they may be operating unsafely. These operators pose a competitive threat to commercial operators who comply with more costly safety standards. The Federal Aviation Administration plans to strengthen safety regulations applicable to private large aircraft operations, making them more comparable to commercial regulations. All large aircraft would then be under similar standards, but there is a need to provide for routine Federal Aviation Administration access to privately operated large aircraft to monitor compliance with applicable regulations and discourage the transfer of aircraft registration to another country to avoid stiffer safety regulation.
