U.S. Senate To Explore Aviation Safety

Move Follows Accident Involving 737 MAX In Ethiopia

U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS), chairman of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, has announced that he plans to hold a hearing on aviation safety following the Boeing 737 MAX accident in Ethiopia on Sunday.

“The plane crash in Ethiopia is a tragedy, and our deepest sympathies are with the families of the passengers," Wicker said in a statement posted to the committee website.

"We are monitoring the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigations very closely. It is important to allow the FAA, NTSB and other agencies to conduct thorough investigations to ensure they have as much information as possible to make informed decisions.

"Thousands of passengers every day depend on the aviation system to get them safely to their destinations, and we must never become complacent with the level of safety in our system. Therefore, the committee plans to hold a hearing reviewing the state of aviation safety to ensure that safety is maintained for all travelers.”

A time and place for the hearing will be announced at a later date.
