Boeing Received No New Orders for Aircraft in April

Boeing Received No New Orders for Aircraft in April”

And another News investigation, for instance, last month found that multiple pilots had shared safety concerns with federal authorities about the Boeing plane ahead of the deadly crashes, with one captain calling the plane's flight manual "inadequate and nearly criminally insufficient".

In both crashes, the system, called the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, pointed the plane sharply downward based on a faulty sensor reading, hindering pilot control after takeoff, according to preliminary crash investigations.

Boeing has been criticized for not disclosing how the MCAS anti-stall system worked - a move that allowed the company to avoid costly retraining.

"As our work continues, I offer this assurance: In the USA, the 737 Max will return to service only when the FAA's analysis of the facts and technical data indicate that it is safe to do so", Elwell said. Boeing did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The House transportation and infrastructure committee questioned acting Federal Aviation Administration chief Dan Elwell and National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt about the planes, which have been barred from flight for two months.

"I, at the beginning when I first heard of this, thought that the MCAS should have been more adequately explained in the ops manual and the flight manual, absolutely", Elwell said. "It shouldn't take a year for us to find out".

Elwell faced skeptical questioning from lawmakers.

He said Congress must help make the public feel safe about flying because "if they don't fly, airlines don't need to buy airplanes", and "then there will be no jobs" in aircraft manufacturing.

"The Committee's investigation is just getting started, and it will take some time to get answers, but one thing is clear right now: the FAA has a credibility problem", Larsen said. But the tragedies are shocking, including for families of victims, he said.

"Boeing has yet to provide a single document", he said.

The highest ranking Republican on the committee, Rep. Sam Graves of Missouri, urged caution before blaming Boeing for the accidents.

"Our team continues to work collaboratively with the FAA, Boeing and the Allied Pilots Association in this process".

Not only did the troubled 737 Max receive zero new orders since it was grounded March 13. Elwell said he's waiting to see what various investigations and audits have to say.

"The worst thing that can ever happen is a tragedy like this, and the even worse thing would be another one", he said later in the meeting held four months before the Ethiopian Airlines disaster. The 737 Max fleet officially launched in August 2011 and boasted a slate of safety and technological upgrades over older 737s and competitor models like the Airbus A320. It automatically commands a relatively modest dive if it senses a plane's nose has gotten too high. Two of the planes have crashed in the past year in Ethiopia and Indonesia, killing 346 people.
