Boeing Received No New Orders for Aircraft in April

Boeing Received No New Orders for Aircraft in April

DeFazio, an Oregon Democrat, said he was disappointed that a single sensor's failure had led to the crashes.

"In the USA, the 737 MAX will return to service only when the FAA's analysis of the facts and technical data indicate that it is safe to do so", he said.

The pilots indicated they weren't aware of the 737 Max's computerized stability program - the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, or MCAS.

Rep. Peter DeFazio, a Democrat from OR, the chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, said Boeing "has yet to provide a single document" in response to the committee's records requests. "Safety is a top priority when we design, build, deliver and maintain Boeing aircraft".

The FAA has called a May 23 meeting of global civil aviation regulators to Texas to discuss the FAA's process for clearing the 737 MAX to resume service. So far he's had nothing.

Pilots have previously slammed Boeing for not alerting them to the inclusion of the system in newer models after the 737 MAX's introduction.

The FAA has concluded that the so-called angle-of-attack sensor disagree light wasn't critical to safety.

The chair of the subcommittee is Democratic Congressman Rick Larsen from Everett, and he joined the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH to discuss what came of the hearings, and what to expect in the future.

Under the FAA's delegation system, companies such as Boeing can appoint people to work as the FAA's "authorized representatives" with the ability to issue certifications. But the tragedies are shocking, including for families of victims, he said.

Elwell said his hope was for better coordination in returning the 737 MAX to the skies than had been the case in grounding it, when global aviation authorities acted separately.

Boeing is redesigning the MCAS system to make it less prone to operate in error. In his opening statement, he listed what he called multiple errors by pilots and airline maintenance workers in the accidents that he said should be considered along with Boeing's design.

The FAA is still the "gold standard", Graves said. National Transportation Safety Board chairman Robert Sumwalt will also appear at the hearing, which marks the first among several planned by House Democrats on the 747 Max plane. The jetliner was one of its most popular model before the crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

The American Airlines pilots union confronted Boeing over possible safety issues in the 737 Max prior to the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash in March, audio recordings from a November 2018 closed-door meeting between the pilots and Boeing executives reveal. The 737 Max fleet officially launched in August 2011 and boasted a slate of safety and technological upgrades over older 737s and competitor models like the Airbus A320. It automatically commands a relatively modest dive if it senses a plane's nose has gotten too high.

Elwell refuted reports that the FAA wasn't directly involved in approving the plane's flight-control system.

But the FAA chief, who hedged his criticism of Boeing over the disasters, faced plenty of tough questioning, including about the agency's move to ground the 737 MAX only after virtually every other civil aviation authority had already taken the plane out of service.
