Senate Report: Boeing ‘Inappropriately Influenced’ FAA on 737 Max Safety Tests

A new report published by the Senate Commerce Committee alleges that Boeing  “inappropriately influenced” FAA test pilots during flight simulations. The interference allegedly took place when test pilots attempted to interact with the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), the same function that led to two fatal crashes in 2018 and 2019. Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) said: “Our findings are troubling. The report details a number of significant examples of lapses in aviation safety oversight and failed leadership in the FAA. It is clear that the agency requires consistent oversight to ensure their work to protect the flying public is executed fully and correctly.”
