FAA:737MAX今年甚至明年2月前恢复商业飞行都无望!

波音737MAX最大的客户之一,美国航空宣布将737MAX的航班推迟到4月7日以后。这是美国航空第九次推迟737MAX的复飞时间。
 
事件源于美国当地时间12月11日FAA的一个关于737MAX适航认证的说明会。

FAA说:737MAX的重新适航认证完全由FAA单独决定,完全以飞机安全为导向,不会按照某个既定时间表。以确保类似两次空难的问题不会再次发生。
 
在安全问题得以解决,飞行员接受了安全操纵飞机所需要的训练完成之后,才是737MAX恢复商业飞行之时,
 
Safety is the core of the FAA’s mission and is our first priority. We are working diligently to ensure that the type of accidents that occurred in Indonesia and Ethiopia—resulting in the tragic loss of 346 lives—do not occur again. The FAA is following a thorough process for returning the 737 MAX to service. This process is not guided by a calendar or schedule. Safety is the driving consideration. I unequivocally support the dedicated professionals of the FAA in continuing to adhere to a data-driven, methodical analysis, review, and validation of the modified flight control systems and pilot training required to safely return the 737 MAX to commercial service. I have directed FAA employees to take whatever time is needed to do that work.

As I have stated before, the FAA’s return-to-service decision on the 737 MAX will rest solely on the FAA’s analysis of the data to determine whether Boeing’s proposed software updates and pilot training address the known issues for grounding the aircraft. The FAA fully controls the approvals process for the flight control systems and is not delegating anything to Boeing. The FAA will retain authority to issue airworthiness certificates and export certificates of airworthiness for all new 737 MAX airplanes manufactured since the grounding. When the 737 MAX is returned to service, it will be because the safety issues have been addressed and pilots have received all of the training they need to safely operate the aircraft.
