FAA raises safety rating for Venezuela
21 April 2006

The U.S. FAA announced it is raising the safety rating of Venezuela to Category 1 following a reassessment of that country`s civil aviation authority. The last time the FAA assessed Venezuela`s civil aviation authority was in 1995. Venezuela has been in Category 2 since that FAA assessment. Since then, two audits by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) have shown increasing improvements.
