Could two fatal airline crashes killing hundreds have been avoided? This question becomes more pressing following a disturbing report was published by the New York Times on Saturday, accusing Boeing to possess left the Federal Aviation Administration at night about last-minute changes to the Boeing 737 MAX.
As a total result, FAA was poorly positioned to oversee the safety of the automated flight system that has been to be blamed for both deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia
The agency engineers responsible for keeping a wrist watch on the airplane’s flight control systems through the latter section of its development had little experience with such software, based on the right times.
Boeing spokesman Peter Pedraza said the business actually had informed the FAA about changes it designed to the flight-control system, dubbed MCAS, through the 737 Max’s development.
“The 737 MAX met the FAA’s stringent requirements and standards since it was certified through the FAA’s processes,” Pedraza said in the statement. “The FAA considered the ultimate configuration and operating parameters for MCAS and concluded it met all certification and regulatory requirements.”
