“I liked what I saw”: FAA conducts Boeing 737 MAX flight test, says process not completed yet

The head of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Administrator Stephen Dickson conducted a nearly two-hour evaluation flight at the controls of a Boeing 737 MAX on Wednesday, a milestone for the jet to win approval to resume flying after two fatal crashes.
"I like what I saw on the flight," Dickson told a news conference, but said he was not ready to give the jet a clean bill of health, with FAA reviews still ongoing.
"We are not to the point yet where we have completed the process," Dickson said.
The Max was grounded shortly after Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed in March 2019, only about five months after the crash of Lion Air Flight in Oct. 2018. Both crashes have been blamed on an automated anti-stall system that pushed the noses of the planes down based on faulty readings from sensors. Boeing hopes to win FAA approval later this year for changes it has made to flight-control software and computers.
Dickson has repeatedly said he would not sign off until he flew it himself and was "satisfied that I would put my own family on it without a second thought." He stated during the press conference that the jet will not be approved for passenger service until all known safety issues “that played a role in the tragic loss of 346 lives” are addressed.

"would you put your family on it?" at the end, he didn't answer the question.

Here an idea, use them as cargo planes since them are suppose to be fuel efficient. If they do not crash after a few years then maybe people will be willing to risk their lives in them.

Yeah. No one gunna trust these things till they are actually flying for a few years with close to no accidents.

The Boeing subsidiary, the FAA, says that its parent's plane is safe because it's covered in sticky tape.
What a surprise.

What pilot gets in a pilot seat in safety vest, before taking it off? Yes, I can see how detail oriented is this FAA pilot.

"At the end of the day, I'm a pilot." No, you're a subservient sheep with that mask on your face!

there will be a law to allow airlines to omit airplane model information on their ticket, and grant the right to switch airplane before boarding.

Now get really real. Do a flight with all the Boeing CEOs and their families as passengers.

I'll sit in the Black Box. It always survives.

If I'm flying and the Max is what I'm flying on, I won't be flying or will be choosing another flight.

by ThaOlBoy 3 weeks ago

I won't be flying in any of those death traps, thank you.

My first change to that plane would be to increase its takeoff clearance at the tail and give it longer landing gears.
