Will be the Only Issuer of New Boeing 737 MAX Airworthiness Certificates: US FAA

In AVIATION

The Federal Aviation Administration said on Tuesday it notified Boeing Co that the agency will be the only issuer of airworthiness certificates for all new 737 MAX planes, a role that it had shared with the aircraft maker in the past.

The US air regulator also repeated that it has not completed its review of the 737 MAX aircraft design changes and associated pilot training. In a letter sent to Boeing on Tuesday, the FAA said it “has determined that the public interest and safety in air commerce require that the FAA retain authority to issue airworthiness certificates and export certificates of airworthiness for all 737 MAX aeroplanes.”

The agency said it will keep the authority to issue the certificates until it is confident Boeing has “fully functional quality control and verification processes in place” and that other Boeing procedures meet all regulatory standards.  Read More
