US authorities are examining Boeing39s production process

The USA is increasing the pressure on Boeing. Following the loss of a cockpit panel that caused a hole in an Alaska Airlines plane during flight last Friday, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced Thursday that it is opening a formal investigation into the company and is now increasing its oversight of the plane maker doubles manufacturing processes. The FAA doesn't trust Boeing, which is a huge blow to the company. The authority had already decided last Saturday to decommission the majority of the 737 Max 9 model aircraft.

“After taking decisive and immediate action to ground approximately 171 Boeing 737-9 Max aircraft, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) today announced important new actions to immediately strengthen its oversight of Boeing production and manufacturing to reinforce. These actions come a day after the FAA officially informed Boeing that the FAA has opened an investigation into the company as a result of last Friday's incident involving a Boeing 737-9 Max model, in which the aircraft had a hole plug for “The flight lost an emergency door,” the agency said in a statement.

Among the actions announced this Friday is the FAA conducting an audit of the Boeing 737-9 Max production line and its suppliers to assess Boeing's compliance with approved quality procedures. The results of the FAA audit analysis will be used to determine whether further testing is required.

The FAA also announces increased oversight of Boeing 737-9 Max operational events, an assessment of safety risks associated with delegated authority and quality oversight, and consideration of options to shift these functions to independent third parties. This means that the quality control of Boeing aircraft production is not carried out by the company itself, but by an external company.

“It is time to review the delegation of authority and assess the associated safety risks,” FAA Administrator Mike Whitaker said in a statement. “The grounding of the 737-9 and the numerous production-related issues identified in recent years force us to explore all risk mitigation options. “The FAA is exploring the use of an independent third party to oversee Boeing inspections and its quality system,” he added.

The FAA announced Thursday an investigation to determine whether Boeing failed to ensure that finished products conformed to its approved design and could be operated safely in accordance with FAA regulations. “The safety of passengers and not speed will determine the schedule for the return to service of the Boeing 737-9 Max,” emphasizes the supervisor.

This Wednesday, Boeing Chairman and CEO Dave Calhoun and company management held a conference call with all employees in which they addressed the importance of safety and emphasized how important every detail is. In it, Calhoun intoned a “mea culpa.” “We will first address this problem by admitting our mistake,” said the manager from a factory in Renton, Washington, where these planes are made. “We will approach the matter with complete transparency at all times. We will work with the NTSB [Junta Nacional de Seguridad en el Transporte] “The company is investigating the accident itself to determine what the original cause is,” Calhoun said, according to a fragment of the intervention released by the company.
