2) “The Committee receives monthly updates from FAA on all near miss incidents. These events are trending downward and the FAA is working with its stakeholders in a collaborative manner to address system or operational issues on a case-by-case basis. We will continue our oversight of these issues to ensure FAA remains focused on improving the safety of our aviation system.”
