The Boeing 737 MAX was banned from flying worldwide in March 2019 after two fatal crashes, according tomedia. On December 2, local time, the Faad sagency (FAA) confirmed that FAA Director Dickerson will testify before the U.S. House of Representatives Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on The 11th to explain the review of the 737 MAX.
U.S. officials reportedly told Reuters last week that there was little hope that the FAA would lift the ban on Boeing’s 737 MAX by the end of December. Boeing must work hard to meet all of the improvement requirements set by the FAA before it can be approved for re-entry. Dixon, himself a senior captain, also said he would test-drive himself before approving the re-entry of the Boeing 737 MAX.
The FAA said last week that it would not submit the ongoing aircraft review to Boeing and would be the sole issuer of the airworthiness certificate for all 737 MAX models.
The FAA told Boeing: “In order to ensure the public interest and commercial safety of aviation, the FAA must retain the right to issue airworthiness certificates and export airworthiness certificates for all 737 MAX aircraft.” “
Dixon was sworn in on August 12, 2019, the report said, in what would be his first testimony about the 737 Max.
