 “It’s very much a work in progress,” said Huerta, referring to applying the new philosophy. “Different FSDOs, CMOs [certificate management office], and MIDOs [manufacturing inspection district office], are at different places. The principal concern from an ASI [aviation safety inspector] or regional counselor is that if we are asking them to exercise judgment, which is effectively what the compliance philosophy is all about, what if they get it wrong? They want to be assured that the agency will stand behind whatever decision they make.”

Huerta indicated that some ASIs are having difficulty switching from an enforcement stance to a collaborative mindset focused on helping the industry achieve compliance. “This is an important cultural change because you’re taking a world that was black and white, and you’re turning it into interpreting different shades of gray. And that is much harder for people to work through. I feel good about the progress we’re making. I don’t believe you flip a switch and suddenly everyone will change overnight, but it’s something we’re committed to and we’re tackling it one on one with conversations with employees.”
Huerta also commented on the upcoming FAA Reauthorization bills making their ways through the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, stating that the agency would like two things from the final bill: flexibility and stability. “There are a lot of things that get in the way of our ability to allocate resources or redefine business processes,” said Huerta. “We’d like to have more flexibility to set priorities. The second thing is stability. During my tenure at the agency, we have been through 25 short-term extensions, two shutdowns and a sequester. That wouldn’t meet anyone’s definition of stability. So what we would really like to have is a long-term authorization that would give us the stability to carry out the work that we’re supposed to do.”
