    ... having watched the hearing today, I am more than ever convinced that the "regulator" is clueless and allows the manufacturer to do whatever they want. This includes SWAG assumptions that where flawed at best. Everyone never assumed that an uncontained failure would cause loss of life. All the data inaccurately showed regulatory compliance and safety mitigation was in place.

    The NTSB was pretty slick with one question of the two uncontained failures, would they be considered a certification test failure as well? You could have heard the manufacturer giving themselves a chair wedgie trying to answer the question!!

    The sad thing is it will take more time to figure out how to prevent another failure. It was 2 years between the last two failures, they found 8 blades that failed inspection after the AD came out, how many more are developing cracks in between inspections??

    ...it it sad that the "regulator" allows the manufacturer to dictate the inspection process. The "regulator" is either incompetent with the inspection limitation or afraid to ruffle the manufacturer's feathers and require the proper inspection process. Poor leadership from 800 Indy!!
