The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has unveiled plans to carry out a three-day examination of aviation safety measures of Thailand in October.

This move comes after the FAA found faults in the Asian country’s air safety standards in the last audit conducted in July.

Following the audit, FAA gave the aviation authorities of Thailand until mid-October to take remedial actions to overcome critical lapses in its commercial aviation safety measures.

The major flaws identified in the audit include shortage of qualified staff to carry out inspections of airline air safety measures.

Earlier, the International Civil Aviation Organisation too raised similar concerns, reported Bangkok Post.

Reports suggest that if remedial measures suggested by the aviation regulator are not taken, Thai carriers could be barred from entry in US.
