The investigation of civil aviation accidents in the United States is overseen by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).  Founded in 1967 through a charter of the United States Congress, the NTSB is responsible for determining the “probable cause” for any civil aviation accident in the United States as well as issuing safety recommendations in an effort to prevent future accidents.  The NTSB is an independent organization that is not part of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) or the U.S Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
