Boeing 737 EASA Testing


Talk first about the seventy seven Max. So Yassa has been testing it. How's it? Been, going. Seven thirty seven fight testing concluded up in Vancouver British. Columbia just recently with look like there's multiple. Certification authorities participating in that Yasser. Obviously Transport Canada would have been there and it sounds like the Brazilians there too. So there is A lot of balls on the seven, thirty, seven, the the flight task. would be a low risk thing at this point. So there's been at least listened to the news reports has been no unexpected outcome of that. Boeing would have been flying at any way in and check in to make sure that the angle of attack sensors and all the. all the sort of the flight management difficulties that they had. What would have been taken care of. So it's it's a check in the box but also to to. have. Some external is watching what happens in the cockpit and see how pilots respond to stuff so. That's a good checkpoint to have done. The next step though is probably the most important and. I always get frustrated when I see this when I think it was in the US representative said while we're going to make sure that it's safe well. The FAA is the Prime Certification Authority. It'd be like F- Airbus certifying a new Airbus, a three whatever. That, he also be the lead on it, and the FAA would just be sort of verification mode, not a recertification mode. So when we see things in the press that sound like Yasa's taking a recertification mode that they're gonNA, take the FA data as a something nice to have but. They're GONNA do their own little certification approval in a sense that's frustrating. That's really frustrating because then it's just left up to opinion. There are rules the rules between the United States in all the other certification authorities in the world are pretty closely aligned. I doubt there was any differences between Yasser. And the FAA in these particular areas. So what's the holdup once the FAA has signed it off and blessed it and also can do the review of it like they should rightly. So but now now aren't some sort of negotiation face. So they're going to be meeting at Gatwick Airport in London Boeing, Jasa Transport Canada's sound like the pretty much anybody WANNA show up to to the party. And talk about things like pilot training issues. What is involved with that Any sort of flight manual adjustments that are proposed would be discussed in there and hammer out those details and I would assume the FAA's going to be there also. You're you like to be a fly on the wall and that place because this is probably a little bit allowed talking will happen and we're in an election year, the United States, of course, which adds to level infant Sensiti to what's happening I Dan I just really struggle with some of these things. It isn't like the FAA made a horrendous mistake. I. Think there's just a lot of complexity to what had happened originally and he also didn't catch it either In their view and they had a chance to review to and I think it just the complexity caught up everybody because systems were cutting more and more complex particularly as we add them onto older generation aircraft, and now we're in this sort of. I don't trust you Scenario which is doesn't good. Bill doesn't build good bilateral relationships and the FAA has been trying to do that for the last several years and this is not good for industry and hopefully they FAA doesn't do it to Airbus. Is that we don't hold it up because we can we're holding up because there's some real risk. And None, of the accident happened in in European. Plight territory so We'll see I don't you don't you get the feeling like some lessons political at this point. Yet feels a little strange like they're not necessarily working together and that they're trying to go their own way. It's yeah it's it seems strange.
