FAA Statement on House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee Report

FAA 'Looks Forward To Working With The Committee To Implement Improvements Identified' (In The Report)

The FAA has responded to the long awaited report from the House of Representatives Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure has been published and as many government reports are wont to do, it places a lot of blame... but not always prioritized according to the realities of the situation at hand.

We noted in our original report that 'While the politicians were patting themselves on the back generously, the report fails to prioritize the ponderous issues involved with the airlines (and the training issues associated with them), that the airlines involved in the two accidents, presented. It also makes sweeping judgments about improper/fraudulent intent on the part of Boeing and the FAA when the aero-community scuttlebutt insists that (in many cases) such malevolent intentions were not truly evident -- i.e., they may have screwed up, but it was through error, careless and such rather than outright intent to deceive, defraud and the like.'

Now the FAA has a few things to say about the report, too...

Statement: The FAA is committed to continually advancing aviation safety and looks forward to working with the Committee to implement improvements identified in its report. We are already undertaking important initiatives based on what we have learned from our own internal reviews as well as independent reviews of the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines accidents.

These initiatives are focused on advancing overall aviation safety by improving our organization, processes, and culture. Last month, the FAA published a NPRM for an AD that will mandate a number of design changes to the Boeing 737 MAX before it returns to passenger service.

The FAA continues to follow a thorough process, not a prescribed timeline, for returning the aircraft to service.
