Audit Initiated of FAA’s Management of the Civil Aviation Registry
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) manages the Civil Aviation Registry to process and maintain ownership registrations for aircraft and issue airmen certificates to qualified pilots, mechanics, and other airmen. Citing concerns with oversight issues and recent media reports, the Chairmen of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and its Subcommittee on Aviation as well as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation requested that we assess FAA’s overall management of the Registry and public access to certain Registry elements. Accordingly, our audit objective is to assess FAA’s management of the Civil Aviation Registry. Specifically, we plan to assess FAA’s (1) controls over the accuracy and completeness of Registry information and compliance with Federal law and (2) policies for providing public access to Registry-related activities.
