In a interlinked global world where nations and economies are knit together, aviation segment is an indispensable mode! Here, Boeing, leading player in global aerospace industry having completed over a 100 years in 2016- is facing an unprecedented challenge to bring its latest offering back in the skies! World over aviation regulators including Europe, China, India and others have mandated that Boeing Max 737 be grounded, which had been one of the bestselling equipment in the aviation sector recently.
According to the Boeing Statement on 737 MAX Operation, “Safety is Boeing’s number one priority and we have full confidence in the safety of the 737 MAX. We understand that regulatory agencies and customers have made decisions that they believe are most appropriate for their home markets. We’ll continue to engage with them to ensure they have the information needed to have confidence in operating their fleets. The United States Federal Aviation Administration is not mandating any further action at this time, and based on the information currently available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators.:
Boeing post Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash that brought air-worthiness and training aspects of the said equipment into global focus had also sent technical team to the site to provide technical assistance under the direction of the Ethiopia Accident Investigation Bureau and U.S. National Transportation Safety Board.
Perhaps its the complexity of flying the equipment. US President Donald J. Trump had said ” Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT. I see it all the time in many products. Always seeking to go one unnecessary step further, when often old and simpler is far better. Split second decisions are needed, and the complexity creates danger. All of this for great cost yet very little gain. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Albert Einstein to be my pilot. I want great flying professionals that are allowed to easily and quickly take control of a plane!”
