The NTSB, not the FAA

"FAA investigations normally produce a detailed report of all the circumstances leading up to aviation incident."

The FAA are the regulator, the NTSB are the agency in charge of investigating incidents and accidents and issuing recommendations. The two must be necessarily separate and independent, as required by Chicago 1946.

(In the UK, the respective equivalents are the CAA and the AAIB)
