“The History of Airline Regulation: USPO, CAA, FAA, CAB, and DOT”

Our next EAL Radio Show on January 22, 2018 will be all about “The History of Airline Regulation: USPO, CAA, FAA, CAB, DOT” Join us to find out the interesting story of how aviation during the 1920s was unreliable, dangerous actually because of pilots’ charismatic attitude and little knowledge of flying or the planes they flew, that it became necessary to establish rules and regulations mandatory. The government felt that by establishing some quality and safety requirements, it could ensure an organized structure and came together in the form of the 1926 Air Commerce Act. It was apparent that an increasing need for more and more infrastructure to support it so several agencies began such as:

USPO: Reliability of the US mail system was being put at risk by delays, cancellations, and crashes. The passing of airmail carrying from the USPS' Air Mail Service to private enterprise caused the government to realize the need of structure in the aviation industry.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is responsible for the regulation of aviation safety in the UK, determining policy for the use of airspace, the economic regulation of Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports, the licensing and financial fitness of airlines and the management of the ATOL financial protection scheme for holidaymakers.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the U. S. is a national authority with powers to regulate all aspects of civil aviation.

The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) is a federal Cabinet of the U.S. government established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, and began operation on April 1, 1967.

The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) was an agency of the federal government of the United States that regulated aviation services, including scheduled passenger airline service, and provided air accident investigation.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Airport Security Rules is an agency of the Department of Homeland Security responsible for screening people and property and control airport security. They also are responsible for air safety and hire Federal Air Marshals who monitor security on board planes.
