Governing Agencies

The following government agencies will become involved in the event of an accident as follows:
  • The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), a separate element of the U.S. government that is primarily responsible for the safety of civil aviation
  • The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), whose role is to investigate the possibility of sabotage or any other criminal act that may have contributed in any way to the accident
  • The NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board), an independent federal agency in charge of investigating every civil aviation accident that takes place in the United States
  • Other agencies such as the Red Cross, FEMA (Federal Emergency and Management Agency) or other state, local, or even foreign agencies (when appropriate)
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) also has the role in working towards preventing future aviation accidents, so it will issue safety recommendations for that end. Additionally, this organization maintains the government's database on any significant aviation accident issues.
