i AN ABSTRACT OF THE RESEARCH PAPER OF KATIE M. LAKE, for the Master degree in PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION, presented on April 8, 2011, at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. TITLE: A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF THE AIRLINE SAFETY AND FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION EXTENSION ACT OF 2010 MAJOR PROFESSOR: Dr. David NewMyer The purpose of this research was to determine how collegiate aviation programs and the future pilot supply will be affected if the Airline Safety and Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2010 is adopted in its entirety. This research builds on literature which suggests graduates from accredited aviation institutions possess the required aeronautical knowledge to competently serve as a first officer for part 121 air carriers. This hiring channel will suffer, safety may be compromised and the future supply of well-qualified pilots may dwindle if the FAA refuses to recognize the invaluable importance of collegiate aviation programs and the detriment of requiring 1,500 total flight hours.
