                                                                                                                  to











        people and   loss of resources. [Figure 1-1]   All Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) operations in the United States involve risk



        and   benefit from decisions that include risk assessment and risk management. Risk management, a formalized way of thinking about








        these topics, is   the logical process of weighing the potential costs of risks against the possible benefits of allowing those risks to stand





        uncontrolled.
