On March 1, 2000, at a hearing of the Subcommittee on Technology, Committee on Science, U.S. House of Representatives, we provided testimony on the FederalAviation Administration’s (FAA) Fiscal Year 2001 budget request for Research, Engineering, and Development (RE&D). Our testimony focused on four issues - changes in the nature of FAA’s research and development efforts and how they are financed; Governmentwide cooperation and coordination on aviation research; aircraft safety research efforts; and the continued need for human factors work in developing new aviation technologies.
