Before Boeing’s MAX return to service: we need answers and transparency
BeCA agrees with ECA's viewpoint and calls upon EASA to restore trust and confidence in certification and regulatory oversight that has been severely undermined by the events leading up to the grounding of the B737 Max
For European pilots, having closely followed the developments and revelations in the past months, it is deeply disturbing that both the FAA and Boeing are considering a return to service, but failing to discuss the many challenging questions prompted by the MAX design philosophy. ln particular, how can a design and regulatory setup that originally failed by approving a flawed aeroplane’s entry into service, credibly provide the solution without significant reform? The European Aviation Safety Agency has a key role to play providing transparent, independent reassurance to pilots and Europe’s travellers.
