Max, one hull loss per 80,000 cycles.

NG, one hull loss per 5,000,000 cycles.

Same pilot community.

You can argue it’s a small sample, but it looks like the plane, not the pilots.

I found this report strained credulity and to be patronising in the extreme.

Part of a campaign to convince Americans Boeing and the FAA are trustworthy?

If MCAS was ‘just’ to get a common type certificate Boeing would have bit that bullet by now and the Max would be flying. No one goes $9 billion in the hole to avoid a training bill.

The pressure on the FAA to accept it is safe will now be immense. Boeing have played their trump card.

The next step will be the Trump card with EASA.

Without wishing to start Boeing versus Airbus debate, does the A350 have the foil in the wings?

The question is only because, if the wing construction is broadly similar and EASA / Airbus require...

I think it was agreed to by the FAA under pressure from Boeing for commercial reasons. That was a commonly held view at the time. EASA certainly thought so, since they did not accept the special...

The rules were ETOPS 180 after one year in service at ETOPS 120. FAA certified the 777 at 180 from day 1, not accepted by EASA. I note you have 30 years with Boeing. You are likely a lot more...

Look at "ETOPS 180 at introduction" in the link below. I'm not arguing that ETOPS was a mistake. Simply that the FAA bent the rules for commercial reasons to support the 777.

I think the rot (regulatory capture) started in the FAA when they fast tracked ETOPS approval for the 777 to take out competition from the A340.

So its not since the 777: the 777 started it.

The frequent fliers won't forget quickly. And it will be interesting to see how the American public react if the FAA so 'yes' and Europe, China, Australia and Canada say 'not proven'.

So the engine nacelle won't contain a blade failure. Are the rudder cables on the 737 NG vulnerable to blade impact damage, or is that a Max specific issue?

Can the 737 control system support DAL C architecture? Superficially it is duplex at best.

It will be interesting to see whether EASA insist on a demonstration of the unaugmented aerodynamics.
