Audit: US airline repair station oversight 'inadequate'
May 8, 2013:
Oversight of aircraft repair stations by U.S. aviation regulators is marred by inspectors who haven't been trained and a system that can't identify the areas of highest risk, according to a government audit. Independent repair shops, used increasingly by airlines trying to cut costs, couldn't account for tools, document the training of their mechanics and prove work had been done properly, the report by the Transportation Department's inspector general found.
