USA: FAA-Boeing security summit coming soon

Strengthen prevention after B-737 MAX 9 aircraft door burst

The company's quality control system and production practices will be at the center of a meeting between the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Boeing Group, specialized in aircraft construction. The aim is to strengthen the prevention mechanisms, after last January 5th 2024 a plug door exploded in flight on board a 737 MAX 9 aircraft operated by the Alaska Airlines company.

"This increased scrutiny from us, from a regulator or from a third party, will make us better", said Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun. This week the FAA administrator, Mike Whitaker, was at a factory of the manufacturer in Seattle, but the date of the safety summit has not yet been announced. 

To date, the US Air Regulatory Agency has prohibited the Boeing company from increasing the production rate of the Max family aircraft. FAA plans to complete the audit of the manufacturer's production quality systems in the coming weeks, a period in which the safety assessment commissioned by an independent team will also arrive.
