Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the status of the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) West Coast Plan and related environmental and management issues.
Recommendations for Executive Action
|Department of Transportation||1. The Secretary of Transportation should direct the Administrator, FAA, to develop a means to facilitate and evaluate regional office adherence to FAA Order 1050.1D, particularly in preparing environmental assessments.|
|Department of Transportation||2. The Secretary of Transportation should direct the Administrator, FAA, to consider ways of ensuring coordination and integration of related airspace projects that are focused on a specific geographic part of the country or are carried out substantially by a single FAA regional office. In the case of the West Coast Plan, this might necessitate reestablishing the position of a West Coast Plan manager in the Western-Pacific region.|
