FAA’s Oversight of Boeing 737 Max Jet Slammed by Lawmakers

FAA’s Oversight of Boeing 737 Max Jet Slammed by Lawmakers (Bloomberg) -- Lawmakers peppered Federal Aviation Administration officials with questions about how the agency approved the now-grounded Boeing Co. 737 Max jet and kept it flying after the first of two deadly crashes despite doubts about its safety.An internal FAA risk assessment conducted after a Lion Air flight crashed off the coast of Indonesia in October 2018, predicted another 15 of the jets would crash over the next 45 years without a fix, according to documents released by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.FAA Administrator Steve Dickson, appearing for the first time before the committee, had refrained from criticizing the agency’s actions before his swearing in in August, saying officials acted in good faith by not grounding the plane until after a second fatal accident March 10.“The FAA failed to ask the right questions, failed to adequately question the answers they received from Boeing,” Representative Peter DeFazio, an Oregon Democrat and chairman of the committee said as he opened the hearing.The committee’s months-long investigation “has uncovered a broken safety culture within Boeing and an FAA that was unknowing, unable, or unwilling to step up, regulate and provide appropriate oversight of Boeing,” DeFazio said.But under questioning by California Democrat Julia Brownley, Dickson said he would have grounded the jetliner after its first crash had he been FAA administrator at the time. “With what I know now, yes,” he said.In the nearly six-hour hearing, the agency received some of the strongest criticism it has faced over the 737 Max crisis that grounded Boeing’s best selling jetliner and has sullied the once-sterling reputation of U.S. aviation regulators.Dickson acknowledged that improvements were needed and revealed that the agency was considering unspecified enforcement action against Boeing. Another FAA official told lawmakers that an investigation is underway of a whistle-blower’s complaints about Boeing manufacturing practices.But the agency decided a warning to pilots was sufficient to keep the plane flying. In March, an Ethiopian Airlines jet crashed after a similar failure involving its flight-control system. A total of 346 people died in the two disasters.Boeing said Wednesday that the company and the FAA decided to “reinforce existing pilot procedures” and that releasing the warning to pilots after the Lion Air crash was sufficient to allow flights to continue until changes to the 737 Max’s flight control system could be made.The FAA’s own analysis showed the plane had unacceptable safety risks and shouldn’t have been allowed to continue flying without a broader fix, DeFazio told reporters after the hearing.“That should have rung alarm bells and it apparently didn’t,” he said. “We’re going to be getting into that.”The risk analysis performed last December, known as Transport Aircraft Risk Assessment Methodology, was done to validate the agency’s decision almost a month earlier to alert pilots to the issue while allowing the plane to continue flying, the agency said in a statement.The analysis predicted there would be 15 fatal accidents killing 2,921 people over a 45-year period with a fleet of 4,800 of the aircraft. The results were based on what would happen if the agency had taken no action -- and at that point the FAA had not only alerted pilots but was working with Boeing to redesign the plane, according to an agency official briefed on the matter who wasn’t authorized to speak about it.A committee staffer disputed the FAA’s characterization. FAA technical experts who briefed the committee last week said that the analysis had taken the initial FAA actions into account, and still predicted additional crashes over the plane’s lifetime. The staffer wasn’t authorized to speak to reporters and asked not to be named.The agency also came under fire from a pair of whistle-blowers.G. Michael Collins, a former FAA certification engineer, told the committee that the agency’s safety culture has become overly deferential to industry, saying it has shifted over the last 15 years “to where the wants of applicants now often take precedent over the safety of the traveling public.”Edward Pierson, a Boeing production manager who retired in August 2018, criticized the FAA and other federal agencies for not doing more to examine the potential role that production issues may have played in the two 737 Max crashes, despite having provided them detailed information about conditions on Boeing’s assembly line.

Rusko bez důkazů vyřazeno z vrcholového sportu

Petr Novák 11.12.2019, 20:37

Ve vrcholovém sportu výkonnostního a nikoliv technického typu „sypou“ dnes všichni, protože jinak se na ten vrchol nemají při dnešní konkurenci šanci dostat. Dnes zneužívají anabolické steroidy zcela běžně již dorostenci. Sportovec po nich lépe regeneruje, vydrží vyšší fyzickou zátěž, rychleji se mu léčí zranění a díky tomu všemu může mnohem brutálněji trénovat a tím

Nejpodlejší rána, jakou kdy světové zlo zasadilo Rusku

Lubomír Man 11.12.2019, 20:29

Když bylo v červenci 2016 oznámeno, že se ruští atleti a atletky na olympiádě v Riu de Janeiro neobjeví – a to pro údajné nedodržování antidopingových pravidel – byl to pro svět šok. Nu a protože tento svět už měl se svými pappenheimskými své zkušenosti, obrátil se na odborníky s otázkou: jde skutečně o doping

Potomci kolaborantů z řad pronacistické šlechty podplatili českou justici a čekají je další pohádkové restituce: kraj i s nevolníky!

Daniel Novák 11.12.2019, 19:53

,,Uteče pár let, lidi tady budou mít problém se nažrat, a pak jim bude jedno, co se komu vrátí“ – Karel Schwarzenberg, 1990 Po 30 letech od sametového podvodu je vymalováno. Německá šlechta, se sudetoněmeckým landsmanšaftem za zády, se chystá k finálnímu tažení proti zbytkům z posledního poválečného dekretu prezidenta Edvarda Beneše č. 108/1945Sb., o konfiskaci

Povedlo se to, nebyl v tom Havel. Jinde kradli víc. Jenom ten Bakala... Docent Ševčík o devadesátkách

12.12.2019, 14:59

Hlavní ekonom BH Securities Štěpán Křeček ve svém pravidelném podcastu BHS Expres přivítal proděkana pro studium a bývalého děkana Národohospodářské fakulty Vysoké školy ekonomické v Praze Miroslava Ševčíka. Ten popsal jeden z ekonomických zločinů z 90. let, za nímž podle Ševčíka stál podnikatel Zdeněk Bakala. Navzdor tomuto a pár dalším zločinům však věří, že se transformace naší ekonomiky povedla, a to prý i díky tomu, že Václav Havel ekonomice nerozuměl.

Černá skla, luxusní Porsche, vedle druhé, SPZ se samými jedničkami... Pražští politici jednali a náměstí, kam je striktní zákaz vjezdu, bylo plné. Policie nikde

12.12.2019, 14:30

Pro Mariánské náměstí u pražského magistrátu platí už řadu týdnů nový dopravní režim. Kromě toho, že na prostranství nebudou parkovat auta, se obrátila jednosměrnost Husovy ulice a změnila se také pravidla v dalších ulicích. Jak to ale na náměstí, kam podle Pirátů a spol. nesmí auta, vypadá, když zasedá pražský magistrát? Posuďte sami.

Průzkum přisuzuje hnutí Trikolóra 16 % a Klaus ml. ho prý objevil na Facebooku. „Rozhodující jsou reálné výsledky, ne hrátky v agenturách,“ reagoval na kritiku lídr Trikolóry.

Petříček o pomníku Vlasovcům: Je to provokace. Bez významu. Ty já neřeším

REPORTÁŽ „Myslím, že sebevědomá země, která má deset milionů obyvatel, by neměla mít problém přijmout čtyřicet sirotků, i kdyby to byli mladiství,“ sdělil na debatě na Technické univerzitě v Liberci ministr zahraničí Tomáš Petříček. „Nemluvím starostům do toho, jak mají opravovat chodníky. Bylo by proto férové, kdyby nemluvili do zahraniční politiky. Ze strany Pavla Novotného je to provokace. Snažím se na to nereagovat, protože do diplomacie provokace nepatří. A pokud – tak musí mít nějaký strategický význam. Tohle žádný strategický význam nemá,“ konstatoval v odpovědi na jeden z dotazů.

Bez iluzí s Petrem Pelikánem: Jakeš byl vůl. Dřív na první máj, teď na Národku. Klaus dostal, co chtěl

12.12.2019, 12:30

30 LET OD LISTOPADU Nejlepší byla devadesátá léta, všechno vypadalo skvěle a žilo se na dluh, hodnotí trojici polistopadových dekád arabista a vysokoškolský pedagog Petr Pelikán. Na druhé straně se v devadesátkách podle něj „položily základy pro řadu nerovností a nespravedlností“. Svoboda slova v současnosti není, hodnotí Pelikán současnost provokativně s tím, že svoboda vyjadřování má své určité limity dané zákonem. Kriticky hodnotí i každoroční oslavy výročí listopadu 1989, které přirovnává k prvomájovým oslavám za socialismu. „Legendarizace“ Václava Havla prý Pelikánovi „začíná trochu připomínat způsob“, jakým byl za jeho dětství vykreslován Lenin.

Dinosaurus NATO se ztěžka vleče

Finian Cunnigham 12.12.2019, 00:10

Roztržky a nevraživost na summitu NATO, který proběhl tento týden, nebylo možné skrýt, dokonce ani pomocí strojených výzev k „jednotě“. Američany vedená vojenská aliance je dinosaurus, který rozhodně překročil dobu svého zániku.

Americký úřad FDA prohlásil: „Ať jedí bavlník“

William Engdahl 11.12.2019, 00:20

Vládní regulátoři v USA schválili geneticky modifikovanou odrůdu bavlníku jako „potenciální řešení pro hlad lidí“. Radikální řešení spočívá v tom, že konzumace GM semen bavlníku, vyvinutých na Texaské univerzitě A&M, avšak bez nezávislých dlouhodobých testů, bude kromě zvířat povolena i lidem. To vyvolává nové, vážné obavy ohledně bezpečnosti našeho potravinového řetězce. V důsledku toho může být světový potravinový řetězec brzy kontaminován geneticky modifikovanými semeny bavlníku, přičemž úřady jednoduše ignorují veškerá rizika.

Požáry v Amazonii způsobují rychlejší tání ledovců v Andách

Matthew Harris 10.12.2019, 00:10

Pokud jste v několika posledních měsících zapnuli televizi nebo si přečetli zprávy, pravděpodobně jste slyšeli o rozsáhlých požárech, které během letošního roku napáchaly velké škody v amazonském pralese. Požáry se v deštném pralese vyskytují každý rok, ale v posledních 11 měsících došlo k nárůstu počtu požárů o více než 70% ve srovnání s rokem 2018, což svědčí o výrazném urychlení odstraňování vegetace ze strany místních těžařských a zemědělských společností.

Pavel Novotný: Když si Žid přeje smrt Čechů, je to zcela v pořádku

Valentin Dobrotivý 06.12.2019, 00:10

Hned na začátku se přiznám, že osobu Pavla Novotného jsem zaznamenal až minulý měsíc, v souvislosti s jeho plánem postavit v pražských Řeporyjích pomník padlým vlasovcům. Toto gesto jsem ihned pochopil jako typicky populistickou, provokativní snahu o získání tolik důležitého celorepublikového politického PR a laciné reklamy na svojí osobu. Což se očekávaně splnilo na více než 100%. Za jiných okolností by to byla bezvýznamná akce vůdce jedné z periferií hlavního města. Díky přehnané (ale účelově plánované) medializaci ovšem překročila hranice této země a dostala se až do hlavního vysílacího času ruské televize.
