Safety Recommendation History
From: NTSB
To: FAA
Date: 8/29/1995
Response: THE BOARD NOTES THAT ON 4/28/95, THE FAA MET WITH THE MEXICAN DGCA CONCERNING THE LACK OF ADHERENCE TO PERTINENT REGULATIONS & REQUIREMENTS OF THE UNITED STATES, MEXICO, & ICAO DISCOVERED IN THE REFERENCE ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION. SINCE THEN, A NEW DGCA HAS BEEN APPOINTED. THE FAA'S APRIL 28 MEETING & ONGOING DIALOGUE WITH THE NEW DGCA FULFILLS THE INTENT OF THIS RECOMMENDATION; THEREFORE, A-95-37 IS CLASSIFIED "CLOSED--ACCEPTABLE ACTION."

From: FAA
To: NTSB
Date: 6/14/1995
Response: THE FAA'S SOUTHWEST REGIONAL OFFICE STAFF MET WITH THE MEXICAN DIRECTOR GENERAL OF CIVIL AERONAUTICS (DGCA) ON 4/28/95, TO INFORM HIM OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE ACCIDENT, PARTICULARLY THE LACK OF ADHERENCE TO PERTINENT REGULATIONS & REQUIREMENTS OF THE UNITED STATES, MEXICO, & THE INTERNATIONAL CIVIL AVIATION ORGANIZATION. SINCE THIS MEETING, A NEW DGCA WAS APPOINTED AS A RESULT OF RECENT ELECTIONS IN MEXICO. THE FAA HAS MET ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WITH THE NEW DGCA TO DISCUSS ORGANIZATIONAL REALIGNMENT SO THAT THE DGCA CAN BE MORE EFFICIENT & RESPONSIVE TO AVIATION SAFETY ISSUES. I BELIEVE THAT THE FAA HAS COMPLETELY ADDRESSED THIS RECOMMENDATION, & I CONSIDER THE FAA'S ACTION TO BE COMPLETED.
