    NASA won't disclose air safety survey

    By RITA BEAMISH, Associated Press Writer 54 minutes ago

    MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. - Anxious to avoid upsetting air travelers, NASA is withholding results from an unprecedented national survey of pilots that found safety problems like near collisions and runway interference occur far more frequently than the government previously recognized.

    NASA gathered the information under an $8.5 million safety project, through telephone interviews with roughly 24,000 commercial and general aviation pilots over nearly four years. Since ending the interviews at the beginning of 2005 and shutting down the project completely more than one year ago, the space agency has refused to divulge the results publicly.

    What we don't know won't hurt us.

    I'm in more danger every time I step on a ladder than I am from flying - I just don't like to fly, so I avoid it on general principle.
