Boeing Hid Test Pilot’s Discovery of Issues with the 737 Max from the US Government
By Cami Toronto, Communications
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is looking for answers from Boeing after several recordings recently surfaced of test pilots unwittingly discovering errors with the 737 Max plane. Date stamps on the recordings indicate they’ve been in possession of Boeing for months, but the FAA has only just received them. These crucial errors with the model have already been a contributing factor in two crashes of the 737 Max. This means the 346 lives lost in these crashes could have been avoided.
Boeing has been claiming openness and honesty throughout the 737 Max investigation to expedite the plane’s return to the sky, but this discovery could set their timeline back considerably. The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure is now suspicious, along with airlines using Boeing products, that this could be indicative of greater deception on Boeing’s part. This calls into question the integrity of their communication with government regulators, aviation experts, and pilots regarding the 737 Max model. This deception could cost Boeing in a big way.
Looking for honesty in your potential employees before hiring them? Converus EyeDetect may be the solution: It’s an employee screening technology that assesses the trustworthiness and personal integrity of possible new hires before they’re hired. EyeDetect detects deception by measuring involuntary eye behavior during an automated, 30-minute true/false test. (Note: The Employee Polygraph Protection Act prohibits using lie detectors like EyeDetect in private companies in the U.S. However, U.S. federal, state and municipal government employees or contractors may be tested.)
