Aviation experts blast FAA over 737 MAX redesign approval: reportUS aviation regulators came in for heavy criticism on Friday over lapses in certifying the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, which has been grounded following two crashes that killed 346 people. The report, authored by a team of international aviation regulators, said the US Federal Aviation Administration lacked the necessary manpower and expertise to evaluate key flight-handling changes on the plane and also delegated too much to Boeing staff, hamstringing its ability to ensure the plane was safe. Certification documents submitted by Boeing were “fragmented” and failed to evaluate the system in “a complete and integrated,” said the report by the Joint Authorities Technical Review, which was put together in March after the second of the two deadly crashes.
