The Federal Aviation Administration Permits Boeing's 737 Max To Continue Passenger Service

November 23, 2020

According to an news report published on GPB.ORG, the Federal Aviation Administration cleared Boeing's 737 Max jet to resume passenger flights following 20 months of grounding due to two tragic 737 Max plane crashes.

The Boeing's 737 Max's return to passenger service will be incremental.  Steve Dickson, the Federal Aviation Administration Administrator, stated that there will be an ongoing "comprehensive, methodical and deliberate review process" to ensure Boeing's 737 Max is safe to fly with passengers.  Dickson also asserts that the Boeing's 737 Max has undergone unprecedented levels of scrutiny by the agency and other international agencies.  

The Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) published an official statement stating that the agency believes the flight-critical aircraft systems are operating properly due to the engineering repairs.

In March 2019, the Federal Aviation Administration along with global aviation partners ordered the 737 Max to be grounded following the tragic Ethiopian Airline accident.  That accident happened a few months after the other tragic 737 Max accident in Indonesia.  These two accidents were traced to a flawed flight control system and faulty sensors.  These defects repeatedly forced the airplanes to nosedive.

According to the news report, Boeing admitted that it was aware of the issue a year prior to the deadly accidents and the company failed to take corrective action.  Investigators claim Boeing engaged in a "culture of concealment" and made it difficult for investigators to conduct their investigation.  Some critics accused Boeing of "cutting corners in a rush to develop the 737 Max," which was promoted as newer and more efficient aircraft.  Families of the victims of the two 737 Max crashes have come forward to say they don't feel the 737 Max is safe to fly again.

Boeing is moving to remove the "MAX" name off of the aircraft due to the level of fear and distrust of the aircraft name.  Boeing is likely remove or downplay the "MAX" name using other names, such as the "737 -7" or "737 -8."
