USAIR TAKES STEPS TO REASSURE PUBLIC ABOUT SAFETY
In a full-page advertorial that appears this morning in
newspapers across the country, Seth Schofield, Chairman and CEO
of USAir, announces that the airline has appointed Gen. Robert
Oakes, a former Air Force commander, to "oversee USAir's safety
and operations" and commissioned PRC Aviation to conduct "a
complete and independent audit" of the airline's "flight safety
operations." According to the ad, which takes the form of an
open letter to "Travelers," Oakes is "a proven dynamic leader of
men and women who fly, maintain, and support high-performance
aircraft in a high-density, highly-visible aviation environment."
Schofield also writes, "There will be no limits to [PRC's]
inquiry." USAir has title sponsorship of the USAir Arena, home
to the Washington Capitals and Bullets (THE DAILY).
