This quote is also 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."
So, please investigate (name’s) ability to serve as a FAA designee in light of his conduct in the meeting I described, as well as any other aspect of his integrity to serve his designated function. It’s funny, but that pivotal meeting also confirmed something I had long suspected about BCAG QA Management. Everything said by (name) in that meeting could also have come directly out of the mouth of any unethical Manufacturing Supervisor at PSD. It was as if I was sitting in front of (name), Manufacturing Supervisor. I had joked with coworkers on a few occasions at PSD, as I had suspected even back then what (name) had proven to be true, that if the Company was intent on saving money, that they should just get rid of QA Management and have us report directly to the Manufacturing Supervisors we supported. Nothing would be different from the line inspector standpoint, and the Company would save huge amounts of money. You see, I did know it all along, but did not want to believe it.
