FAA, Boeing, Cass discussed on Here & Now

Here & Now


And what did we learn today from the hearing, Jerry, I think what's most notable today is what wasn't new now subcommittee members, of course, asked about recent developments report in, in recent days and weeks about what else might have gone wrong leading up through crashes but Daniel L. Well, mostly stuck by the F as previous positions. For example. Assigning some blame based on information out there, so far any way to, to the pilots in both crashes and sticking with the FAA's timeline for grounding the plane, you know asked, whether the FAA was, too slow to ground the max in the days after that second, crash bay Volvo youth ups airlines, he basically said, no other countries were two too quick to do it. The FAA was doing a data driven analysis. And it just took until then together all the facts. Now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that there's been an internal F A A review, which says senior agency officials were not involved in the safety assessments for the jets flight control system, the m Cass, what do we know about the certification process, it seems to have happened, according to the Wall Street Journal, is that the FAA Boeing rather got to tell the FAA how important it thought 'em Cass was, in terms of, whether it could have caused something catastrophic and Boeing didn't think it could. So then base. Based on that the FAA was kind of relying on Boeing to do more of the work here. Then would have been the case, if it believed or understood that it was more a critical system as now very much appears to be the case. Well, and it gets to this point that keeps coming up over and over again, which is that it looks like Boeing in the FAA were a little too close for comfort on a lot of this. Yeah. And, and, oh oh, by the way, when asked about that new reports that he wasn't aware of the internal review that, that story was based on. But yeah, this is called the organization designation. Authorization a long-term for something that basically describes his program where if the FAA trust a company to do some of this work, it'll do that. And this is routine in a lot of cases and not just in this industry. But of course, now with everything under the microscope, all kinds of questions about whether too much power essentially was, was, was ceded to Boeing, whether this was more than collaboration. Whether this was, you know, the company, it should have been regulated causing the calling the shots is set to have any better sense of win. The seven thirty seven max will be back in the air not too many people in the airline industry. Expect it back in the air before late summer. And if you just kinda look at what airlines are doing with their schedules. They don't seem to believe that either L. Well today did say that he expects the formal application at least from Boeing to come quote, soon soon. Okay. But then, of course, they're going to be a lot of passengers to convince that they want to actually book flight on a seven thirty seven max, which, you know, when I just anecdote only when I've talked to people at this point, they're not ready yet.
