1/ Many countries have grounded their #Boeing737Max, except the #US & #Canada. @TheCurrentCBC spoke today with a former pilot, engineer, and aviation expert and litigator who said he wouldn't board a 737Max flight as he explained why this plane is not safe (transcript tomorrow).
2/ #Boeing has been working to fix problems on the 737Max by acknowledging, in corporate language, its many problems. The plane has a tendency to nose up, its softwares make the plane do things that the pilots don't want to do, and it is a new way of flying.
3/ Despite its many problems and new approach to flying, Boeing sold the plane as it would sell many others without requiring special training from airlines because training requires money and it would have turned them away from buying the plane. #Boeing737Max
4/ What is weighing heavily in the decision of the #US and #Canada not to ground #Boeing737Max is that the FAA is both a safety and economic agency and in this case it is taking in consideration economics more than safety. Canada is following blindly the US in this.
7/ #Boeing Reels as Europe Joins in Global Rebuke: #737Max Update.
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
8/ "It’s rare for regulators from other countries to defy the #US Federal Aviation Administration." Note: #Canada is not defying, it is following. #cdnpoli
9/ #Boeing737MAX8 groundings spread across the globe. reuters.com/article/us-eth…
11/ Former pilot blasts #US authorities for not grounding #BOEING737MAX8 after Ethiopian crash. cbc.ca/radio/thecurre…
12/ #Canada and the #US are the only countries still flying #BOEING737MAX8. Statement from Canadian transport min today at 11 am. However, Canadian Sunwing has decided to ground its #737MAX, allegedly not for safey reasons.
13/ Pilots filed multiple complaints about the #Boeing737Max8 in recent months citing issues with the autopilot system and the anti-stall system. thehill.com/policy/transpo…
15/ Acting #US Def sec worked for Boeing for more than 30 years and oversaw the production of #BOEING737MAX8 citizensforethics.org/press-release/…
17/ There is a lot of information in this thread from #Canada transport min Marc Garneau on the #Boeing737Max. Canada took its decision to suspend only today, a day after most Europe and Asia have suspended the flights of the 737Max.
19/ More bad news for #Boeing but already known by aviation experts in the aftermath of the second crash. The Ethiopia Airlines & the Lion Air flights had the same fatal trajectories at takeoff, these were captured by satellite images. cbsnews.com/news/boeing-73…
21/ This is how the #US industry works now: 'as Boeing hustled to catch up to #Airbus' and release the #737Max, the FAA delegated the safety assessment to #Boeing. The safety assessment showed serious flaws, yet Boeing went ahead and sold an unsafe plane seattletimes.com/business/boein…
22/ "The FAA, citing lack of funding and resources, has over the years delegated increasing authority to Boeing to take on more of the work of certifying the safety of its own airplanes." #Boeing737Max
23/ "When time was too short for FAA technical staff to complete a review ... managers either signed off on the documents themselves or delegated their review back to Boeing. 'The FAA managers, not the agency technical experts, have final authority on delegation'" #Boeing737Max
