FAA releases plan to review aircraft designs after two fatal crashes

THE Federal Aviation Administration (F) released a multi-stepped plan on how to review aircraft designs after two fatal crashes on Boeing Company's 737 Max, Bloomberg reports.

A total of 346 people died in the two crashes. A Lion Air 737 went down in the Java Sea from Jakarta on October 29, 2018. Shortly after, an Ethiopian Airlines jet crashed on March 10, 2019.



The 737 Max was grounded in March 2019 after the two fatal crashes linked the automated safety system as being responsible for downing the nose due to a fault. In both cases, the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System drove down the nose, and the pilots failed to disable it.



The agency has plans to update regulations that'll require better safety systems and is contemplating how it assumes pilots will react to failures.



This plan comes in response to a blue-ribbon panel's review that found the agency needed to update its systems. The report found the existing safety processes adequate, but highlighted areas where improvements were needed.



'The F will work with a variety of partners throughout the aviation industry and international regulatory community to complete this work,' the agency said.
