A report in USA Today on the results from a new error-reporting program in the United States’ air-traffic system is rather shocking. It was reported by USA Today that thousands of previously-unknown hazards such as dangerous runway crossings and unreported midair problems are being revealed. In the 18 months since the Federal Aviation Administration kicked off the program – which guarantees employees immunity in exchange for honest accounts of all but the most serious lapses – the agency has received more than 14,000 reports, according to USA Today. It was reported that:
The federal government must take all steps necessary to make air travel as safe as reasonably possible. Not only should errors in the air-traffic system be reported, but preventative measures must be taken to eliminate errors.
