Purpose of the FAA and NTSB
The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) play a key roles in determining what went wrong in avaiation accidents and disasters. These federal governing body are needed because these accidents typically involve more than one jurisdiction. In the event of a loss, the NTSB serves as investigator to determine criminal liability, attempting to improve air travel safety in the future. The FAA's role in aviation law is to ensure the adherence of safety standards by overseeing the maintenance, operation, and manufacturing of all aircraft.
