Fight For Aviation Safety Continues!

Air 21 in progress: 

Court continues! We thought that 5 days was enough... we were wrong. The process continues for an Air 21 complaint. This is a public venue, where the public is encouraged to observe these types of hearings. Far too many people are unaware of the protections designed for safety, and this is just one step to improving airline safety. Nobody should ever be retaliated for reporting safety. 

There is no jury. An administrative law judge will be ruling on behalf of public in the interest of aviation safety. 

April 29th we are back in court
promptly at 9 AM!
(April 30 and May 1st too)


Monday, April 29 through Wednesday May 1, 2019. 




SCOTT R. MORRIS Administrative Law Judge

Many of the elements within this case reflect my resent research. If you cannot join us, please read Normalization of Deviance. Safety Culture and associated training have proven to be impacting pilot performance in a negative manner.  No longer can we simply blame the pilot. No longer can we have a culture that retaliates against employees for reporting safety. The FAA's SMS mandate is designed to improve operational safety, but only if it is followed. We need to prevent that next accident. What can you do to help?

The public is welcome! 

The courtroom is located in 
the new FAA building 
just 5 minutes south of SeaTac Airport.

Enjoy the Journey!
I will be back at the end of the week!

  1. Karlene,

    Keep rattling the cages until the people in power listen. The big companies want to make it look like that the pilot is the weak link in the chain. But we all know, that we are the glue that holds it all together, while the government, faa, ATC, TSA, aircraft manufactures, the airlines, and the public still put their faith in smoke and mirrors.

    1. Rob, they should put their faith in the pilot and simply provide them the tools to do the job! If we don't stand up for right, wrong will prevail. Passengers and pilots deserve better than what is happening in todays world. If you had the opportunity to sit in this courtroom, your eyes would open wide at the depravity, the perjury, and you would see first hand the extent humans go to, to harm another. We've seen this behavior in history. But in todays world... this is simply amazing.
