Additional Coordination and Data Could Advance FAA Efforts to Promote a Robust, Diverse Workforce

GAO – U.S. Government Accountability Office published report highlights –

The Federal Aviation Administration requires aircraft be repaired and approved for flight only by mechanics who are “certificated” by the FAA. FAA oversees the certification process of these mechanics and of repairmen who fix aircraft parts. Some stakeholders are concerned that retirements and attrition could reduce the number of certificated workers needed to meet the growing demand for air travel.

One of FAA’s goals is to promote the development of a robust and diverse workforce, but it doesn’t collect or analyze data to measure progress toward its goal.

We recommend that FAA make better use of existing data to measure this progress.
