US. aviation authorities responding to last month’s Lion Air jet crash launched a high priority probe for safety analyzes


has been carried out over the years. Regulators are interested in what information Boeing distributed to the airlines about any hazards associated with a new automated flight management system introduced in the latest versions of Workhorse 737 aircraft.

The Federal Aviation Administration on Tuesday said it reviewed details of safety data and conclusions that the Chicago Planner earlier provided the agency as part of the 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 Certification Certification. The agency’s statement, which came after about two weeks of reducing to comment on any accident that killed all 1

89 people on board, also showed that officials are looking at training requirements for pilots.

Signaling that future regulations and generally An intensive monitoring of Boeing’s risk assessment processes comes, saying “FAA and Boeing continue to evaluate the need for software and / or other design changes,” including “operational procedures and education as we learn from the ongoing “crash probe led by Indonesian authorities.

The statement is the clearest sign than about internal FAA problems due to preliminary clue as to why the two-engine aircraft killed in the Java Sea at steep angle and high speed.

A Boeing spokesman did not respond immediately to questions on Tuesday. On Monday, the Chicago-based airplane maker said: “We take all steps to fully understand all aspects of this incident, collaborate closely with the investigative team and all relevant authorities.”

When Boeing chose to install the new flight control function, according to government officials, the company found that it was virtually impossible for a combination of sensor failures, pilot actions, and automatic nuisance commands of the new system that pose a serious safety hazard.

But now with preliminary crash data indicating that the planet only experienced such an event before the crash, the company’s risk analysis and decision making is under increased public scrutiny. It is also the monitoring of the FAA, which agrees to allow two US airlines to start flying the new models without Boeing providing cockpit staff or senior pilots details of how the new air traffic control system works and what risks it may involve under unusual circumstances by automatically and vigorously push down a flight nose.

Investigators have not determined the cause of the Lion Air crash, and security experts warned that it’s too early to just tell how important the new air traffic control system recorded the tragedy. But when more clues appear and crash scientists deeper into design problems and the interaction between different computerized systems and cockpit displays, the focus goes on from the assumptions to the first Boeing security assessments.

More than 200 737 MAX plans have been delivered to airlines worldwide, including US air carriers

American Airlines and United Airlines. It represents a fraction of the thousands of 737s used.

Indonesian investigators are still searching for the aircraft’s cockpit voice recorders, which may contain vital information about what the pilot saw and did when they were wrestled with suspicious occurrence of sometimes conflicting electronic warnings, unreliable aviation speeds and a seemingly uncontrollable aircraft that increases the speed when it moves towards the water. Investigators and security experts have said that the crew might have had a few seconds to respond appropriately after a certain period of time.

A November 10 memorandum from Southwest Management to its pilots, reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, stated that Boeing omitted information from flight manuals about the stall prevention system, as pilots could not possibly find themselves in situations where its functions.

Deficiencies in Boeing’s risk analysis procedures caused previous major headquarters for headquarters, headquarters and headquarters for the company. It has initially failed to recognize or counteract any flammable rechargeable lithium batteries installed on Boeing flagship 787 aircraft. All jets were temporarily grounded until Boeing and FAA agreed on a foolproof fix.

In addition to the details of the safety reviews associated with the Lion Air crash, the accident could have broader consequences for how FAA approves new aircraft models and the complex computer systems that control more equipment on board.

The agency has for some time moved to delegate more responsibility to aircraft and equipment manufacturers to carry out detailed risk assessments on new or derivative products. Congress has pushed FAA leaders in the same direction, partly to save federal dollars and partly to accelerate and streamline regulatory requirements for industry.

But the Lion Air crash has to revise the debate about whether the FAA granted Boeing excessive leeway – and then failed to independently validate the company’s conclusions – about any unintended consequences and dangers of the new air traffic control system.

In its Tuesday statement, FAA said it is currently reviewing each of the individual safety assessments carried out by Boeing and then passed on to FAA, which covers every computerized system that receives data from what is called an indication angle. The sensors, one of which is suspected of malfunction of the flight that crashed, measures the angle at which a flat nose and wings are raised or lowered. Incorrect attack angle data may result in incorrect aerial displays, incorrect warning instructions, and other problems that may be incorrectly interpreted by pilots.
