Abstract

Aviation has many parallels to the nuclear power industry, and as a result there are many potential lessons to be learned from an examination of aviation deregulation. In particular, both industries:
  1. 1)

    Rely on advanced technology.

     
  2. 2)

    Are heavily regulated.

     
  3. 3)

    Emphasize public safety from low-probability, high-consequence accidents.

     
  4. 4)

    Require high levels of personnel qualifications and training.

     
Therefore, the experiences of the aviation industry and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) with economic deregulation are potentially of interest to the nuclear power industry and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commision (NRC).
