 FOQA - Aviation Safety v. Legal Rights
Recently, Congress enacted the Federal Aviation Reorganization Act of 1996 (49 U.S. Code Section 40123) which gives the administrator of the FAA the right to withhold "voluntary" submitted information from disclosure where it effects flight safety or security, and disclosure would inhibit the free flow of such information to the agency.
The law, lawyers and the litigation process, may appear to be interfering with the worthy safety goals of FOQA; however, the freedoms of a democratic society can only be protected when the competing legal rights of all parties involved are protected.
 Many FAA enforcement actions are necessary and not all air crash litigation is frivolous.
Anyone with an aviation law problem should be guided by the advice of his or her lawyer, under applicable federal and state laws, after a full and confidential disclosure of all relevant facts.
