Review Initiated of FAA's Oversight of Commuter and On-Demand Operators

Project ID
File Attachment

The Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee requested that we conduct a review and provide observations regarding FAA’s oversight of commuter and on–demand operators. Specifically, we were asked to (1) evaluate the differences between FAA regulation and oversight of commuter and on–demand operators versus requirements and oversight provided for larger commercial air carriers; (2) identify specific issues that may hinder FAA in its oversight, such as a lack of adequate data on commuter and on–demand operations; and (3) provide recommendations to improve FAA oversight of these operators.
