Today, the current aviation standard for safety is now the minimum requirements of the FARs. It used to be when I was first hired at my airline that safety was a no compromise issue. Money was allocated to maintain a HIGH level of safety at least at the major airlines. Today, all airlines perform the minimum required by the FAA to maintain their aircraft and train their crews in an effort to stay in business or “remain competitive”. The major airlines have been lucky in that the age demographics of their pilots have given them seasoned aviators at a time they have been reducing their maintenance budgets.
