slides. nasa has received more than 100 anonymous complaints in the last seven years. most of the malfunctions operator error. the investigative unit also obtained this faa database, from 2007 through 2012, air carriers reported more than 3300 service difficulty reports about slides, because of those reports, the faa has issued enforcement regulations commonly known as air worthiness directive. one was handed down just months before asiana flight 214 landed here at sfo. on may 3rd, this air worthiness directi directive. the concern, corrosion with preventing the slides from deploying. the faa warned if left unaddressed it could cause delay and injury during evacuation.
