Trump Finally Announces FAA Chief Nominee Amid Airline Safety Crisis

The first report of the pilots' conversation from last October's Lion Air crash emerged today, along with news that the same aircraft had been saved from disaster a day earlier by an off-duty pilot on the airliner. Ky noted that one Lion Air crew correctly disabled the plane's malfunctioning flight-control system, but not the crew on the next flight, which crashed.

The French air-accident investigation agency BEA said the two crashes showed "clear similarities," and Boeing is introducing a software upgrade to its new anti-stall system that has come under scrutiny after the two crashes.

A preliminary KNKT report said the crew of Air Lion Flight 610 struggled to override the plane's automatic systems in the minutes before it plunged into the ocean.

The preliminary report showed that the plane's computer kept pushing the nose of the plane down using the trim system, which is a system that usually adjusts the aircraft to keep it on course.

The pilot reportedly advised the crew to kill the power to a motor that was pointing the aircraft's nose downward. In addition to this, the manufacturer plans to offer extra pilot training.

"To help inform the Department's decision making and the public's understanding, and to assist the FAA in ensuring that its safety procedures are implemented effectively, this is to confirm my request that the Office of Inspector General proceed with an audit to compile an objective and detailed factual history of the activities that resulted in the certification of the Boeing 737-MAX 8 aircraft". 737 Max for service before two fatal crashes of the jetliner.

"We have been working very hard to minimize that impact", said Lucie Guillemette, the airline's executive vice president. Last week, after many criticized the FAA for their initial refusal to ground the jets in question, US President Donald Trump also announced that he would ground the planes until Boeing arrived at a solution to the safety issues.

The captain was at the controls of Lion Air flight JT610 when the almost new jet took off from Jakarta, and the first officer was handling the radio, according to a preliminary report issued in November.

The investigation into the final minutes of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 turned on Tuesday to the secrets in the cockpit voice recorder as Boeing and a shaken global aviation industry hung on the outcome.

The combination of factors required to bring down a plane in these circumstances suggests other issues may also have occurred in the Ethiopia crash, said Jeffrey Guzzetti, who also directed accident investigations at FAA and is now a consultant.

MCAS is driven by a single sensor near the nose that measures the so-called angle of attack, or whether air is flowing parallel to the length of the fuselage or at an angle.
