在飞机的交易在FAA上周五处理放缓的猜测可能会在很短的持续时间的计算机问题，该机构被指责, 根据德比默瑟-欧文, 总部位于俄克拉何马州莱特兄弟飞机标题总裁. 在系统出现了故障导致它做下去了大约两个小时, but it returned to full operation later that day, she told AIN.
“The FAA never made an announcement saying that [it wasn’t] going to be able to do business or that the mainframe wouldn’t come back up,” Mercer-Irwin said, adding that the company’s contractors within the agency were likewise unaware of any major problems. “Title searches, filings, receiving of documents, flight wires, just normal, everything is going just fine.”
Mercer-Erwin did note that one possible area of concern due to the continuing partial government shutdown would be in the submitting of documentation for trust transactions to the FAA’s Aeronautical Center Counsel (ACC). “If you are going to have a trust approved, they would not be there to do that, and that would happen prior to registration, so some new business for trust companies could be affected because you cannot receive anything out of the ACC legal department, but that’s the only [related FAA] division that’s closed down,“ 她说.
