I don't understand this part. Could aerospace engineers working at the FAA not learn about advances?

In UK financial regulation, the traditional problem is: Competent subject-matter experts at regulators get job offers for ££££ at the companies they're regulating; and anyone who moves the other way or cycles between the two is at risk of 'revolving door' corruption, where they use their position as a regulator to advance the interests of their former employer.
