FAA TO FIELD QUESTIONS VIA COMPUTER NETWORK

 FAA TO FIELD QUESTIONS VIA COMPUTER NETWORK
 WASHINGTON, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Flight Standards Service


in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is opening a direct line to the aviation community to answer questions about the agency's regulations and procedures.
 The initial vehicle for this exchange, which is intended to promote greater compliance with FAA's safety standards and a better understanding of what the agency does, will be the Aviation Forum of the CompuServe personal computer network.
 Members of the forum -- CompuServe users who are also interested in aviation -- will type questions into their computers and, using a modem, send them to a computer in the Washington Flight Standards office. The answers will be transmitted in the same way.
 The answers will be provided by Rick L. Cremer, aviation safety inspector, working with other members of the FAA staff in Washington and around the country.
 Cremer, who will provide the service as part of his regular job, is well qualified to respond to inquiries as a result of his broad experience the past 20 years with FAA. Cremer has served as an aviation safety inspector, holds an airline transport pilot's certificate and is qualified to fly DC-9 aircraft. He is a former air traffic controller who also holds flight instructor, ground instructor, aircraft dispatcher and aviation mechanic certificates.
 Cremer will research and provide answers to questions in such areas as airman certification, airline certification, FAA regulations and the regulatory process, air traffic procedures, aircraft operating requirements and approach procedures. He will not be able to answer questions on conflicts between an individual or a company and the FAA.
 He can be reached by joining CompuServe's Aviation Forum (GO AVSIG) and leaving a message at 72130,3305.
 Anyone interested in becoming a subscriber may call CompuServe on 800-848-8990. Any type of personal computer can be used, but a modem is essential.
 Although the service will be limited to the CompuServe network at first, the FAA will be receptive to requests that it be expanded to other personal computer networks.
