Senate Report: Boeing, FAA manipulated 737 Max tests

A Senate investigation accuses Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration of manipulating recertification tests to get the 737 Max back into service.

A report claims Boeing inappropriately coached test pilots during testing of the MCAS system.

The system’s failure was linked to two fatal crashes in Ethopia and Indonesia, leading to its grounding.

The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation said the FAA and Boeing attempted to cover up important information that may have contributed to the 737 Max crashes.

In a statement, Boeing said that it “takes seriously the committee’s finding and will continue to review the report in full.”

Currently, the 737 Max is in the process of being cleared for flight around the world.
