The aviation industry urged Congress to pass the very legislation that created the FAA. 43 As was customary in the civil aviation system, the impetus for a change in the dual mandate came in reaction to a disaster. In this case, it was the May 1996 explosion of a ValuJet DC-9 over the Everglades. ”44 In introducing legislation to implement the change advocated by Secretary Pena, Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) stated, “We cannot expect the FAA to regain the trust of the public while it maintains the mission to both ensure their safety while continuing to promote the growth of the carriers.

How can it nurture both market forces and public safety at the same time? ”41 This divided focus had significant implications for the FAA’s ability to carry out its security mission. ”42 Former Department of Transportation Inspector General Mary Schiavo wrote in her 1997 book, Flying Blind, Flying Safe: The FAA’s dual mission did not leap out at anyone in 1958 — or in most of the years following—as a glaring paradox. In those days, aviation was heavily regulated. The government controlled prices, routes, even the purchase of airplanes.

M. the Boston Air Traffic Control Center instructed its controllers to notify all aircraft within the Center’s airspace of the two crashes in New York City and advise them to heighten cockpit security. , when on his own initiative a United dispatcher began transmitting the message to “Beware any cockpit intrusion” to his sixteen transcontinental flights.
