    In the last five months of 2019 there has been 431 accidents recorded by the NTSB. The accident rate is increasing with 121 FAR (Airline) operations having more incidents and accidents.

    SO what is happening? Why is the accident rate increasing while the FAA pours millions in accident prevention programs......

    BTW I remain concerned about the layers of safety disappearing. What does this mean....

    1. 330 minute ETOPS all the world airlines
    2. Bogus parts in creasing in foreign MRO’s
    3. Closure of all the foreign Intentional field offices.
    4. ATC controller shortages
    5. FAA field inspector personnel being reduced
    6. FAA flight inspectors not current
    7. Accident rate increasing world wide
    8.Lack of proper over site by government inspectors.
    9. Inept FAA management
    10. RUBBER STAMPING AIRCRAFT CERTIFICATION......

    I could keep going but until something is done about these problems the accident rate will continue to increase

    I have to say I am amazed that Congress does nothing but hold boring ineffective hearings with nothing being done. Yet, they fly and use the airlines and General Aviation all the time.

    I suppose they thing nothing could happen to themo_O

    I'm sure their bean counters have their risk based data analyzed. As long as it isn't their loved ones, they don't care about numbers.

    Just looked at the helicopter crash statistics for the year. The bean counters are having to work really hard this year to keep the rate from busting their ability to get their bonuses. They will have to up the total flight hours to keep the rate down.
    Drain the Swamp!!

    The Library that will NEVER happen. :p:D.................The $10 million was probably given to Boeing 'somehow' by 'Back door Obozo' and returned clean as a 'donation'? Is that just a drop of the $6 Trillion missing? 200 planes equals 100,000 new jobs in the US? Yeah Riiiiight! He doesn't know what a magic wand is. :eek:o_O

    My sister who is an Assistant District Attorney for Manhattan County who did previous work as a Criminal Defense Attorney but got tired of fighting for the guys who were "incredibly, unbelievable guilty" gave me this bit of advice once. Whenever you feel you are being threatened by civil or criminal law suit get a lawyer immediately, don't fool around." Fortunately I never needed one. Really Boeing is just be proactive and cautious. It's not possible they did anything that might be considered "criminal". Right?

    Boeing being the manufacturer of the aircraft was surveilled by the FAA. The FAA is suppose to check and certify the aircraft. In this case the FAA agreed to certify the aircraft under the Supplemental Type Certificate, STC program that allows manufacturers to get changes to an aircraft approved for less cost. It would save Boeing millions against new a aircraft Type Certificate. I’d say it probably would have costed Boeing a few hundred million for a New “Type Certificate” compared to the STC. The new TC would have required flight testing and also the aircraft would require a different “type rating” for pilots, another expense for airlines.

    It obvious the FAA and Boeing agreed to the lesser costly route and very little new training for pilots would have been required!

    Great for everyone and big money saved. Except in this case the FAA did not check Boeing on the changes too the MAX and basically “rubber stamped” Boeings’ development numbers. The FAA saved money too!

    However it seems the inspectors on the Boeing Certification may not have been qualified!? But that would have been no problem since the FAA was not going to check Boeing any way.

    So 346 people died in two air crashes and the FAA is being investigated and the acting Administrator is being replaced and FAA personnel involved are retiring or being transferred.

    The cost to Boeing alone could be 3-4 Billion Dollars........BILLION.

    So the investigation has begun and let’s see what happens!

    There have been a lot of investigating going on. Wonder what is being found or being covered up??

    1. Investigation by the FBI (no track record of covering up investigations, sigh)
    2. Investigation by the SEC (have to protect the investors and not protect the consumer, sigh)
    3. Investigation by the DOT IG (all bark and no bite)

    Just because the regulator says the Max is safe to return to service, their reputation is so damaged that the rest of the ICAO may not accept the regulator's decision.

    The regulator's "data driven" safety culture flaws are getting exposed as a failure to effectively get the job of oversight done. Of course congress failed too. They hold the purse strings.

    Plenty of blame to go around. The offenders will either be held accountable or get the investigations to cover it up. History shows it will be more than likely the latter.

    Never forget the 346 who paid for the corrupt ways of the mighty industrial machine and big government. SAD!!

    I would agree except Trump is in the White House and 346 killed has made them aware.

    The idiot Congress believes it can’t happen to them!.......right!

    Hopefully, the "biggly one" will clean the regulator's house from the top down and restore the intent of proper oversight. Otherwise, the 346 is just another number in some bean counters database.

    Well G/A loses as you know 7-800 a year except it’s a few at a time along with 1200 accidents a year.....So no one really notices the carnage.

    3 FAR 121 crashes in six months is too much to hide. The 767 crash killed only three crew, since it was a freight dog ........

    So as ......let’s see!;)

    Until the revolving door is locked and the coziness is stopped, I have little faith in things changing. The first two levels of management needs to be removed before there will be any hint of change. The top two levels have well know records of using the revolving door and coziness. They have also bought into the Miss Piggy and Huerta doctorate of coziness. I have little hope that the new Administrator selectee will change anything. He has bought off the Miss Piggy ideas too.
