“New” Compliance Philosophy Begets AFS Policy

September 15, 2015

In keeping with the administrator’s “new” directive for focusing compliance resources, the Flight Standards Service (AFS) put some meat on the bones of expected actions by the aviation safety inspector workforce by updating its own policy. Notice N8900.323, effective Sept. 8, seems to be airline operation directed but still contains constructive methods for resolving issues between the agency and its certificate holders.

While ARSA objects to the assumption that the certificate holder is always wrong in discussions involving compliance; AFS certainly provided its workforce positive tools rather than an enforcement hammer.
