What does the FAA do?

Many agencies, organizations and companies work together to ensure commercial flights are safe for you and other New York travelers. These agencies do many things from managing air traffic to monitoring the manufacturing of airplanes. One important agency is the Federal Aviation Administration. You have likely heard of the FAA, but do you know what it does to ensure your flights are safe?

According to the FAA website, the agency has a few different responsibilities that enable it to keep air travel safe. It works with the agencies of other countries to ensure aviation safety for international flights and to improve aviation here in the U.S. It conducts research to improve safety and help prevent aviation accidents. It also regulates air traffic control to ensure things run smoothly and to make improvements when needed.

The FAA works to create better and safer aircrafts, including navigation systems and overall plane design. It also regulates the safety of the industry through enforcing regulations and standards for maintenance, manufacturing and operation. 

Given its authority under the Federal Aviation Act of 1958, the FAA works daily to ensure that the flights you are on follow all safety protocols. When problems are found, it works to find solutions and prevent problems from occurring again in the future. As part of the Department of Transportation, its main goal is to ensure you and every other passenger on a commercial flight are kept safe from preventable harm.
