I think some quotes from another document might be good for a change. This quote is from my first report to the FAA local MIDO office, when I was naive and chose not to believe all those press reports about the FAA being the "handmaiden of the aviation industry" and a "tombstone agency."
I could go on and on, but that’s all I can think of at the moment. Please investigate the above. Talk to mechanics and inspectors alone, without a Company representative present, so they can speak freely and confirm the above along with telling you all of the similar experiences that they have had trying to do their jobs ethically.
