Aircraft Certification Committee Release Findings and Recommendations to Enhance Aviation Safety

The Special Committee to Review the Federal Aviation Administration’s Aircraft Certification Process (the Committee), established by U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, released its report after more than six months of study and evaluation.

The Committee was commissioned as an independent panel of aviation and safety experts to conduct an objective review of the procedures of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for product certification and the processes followed by the FAA and Boeing during the certification of the 737 MAX 8. The Committee was instructed to review the certification process, evaluate potential enhancements to the system, and make recommendations to bolster aviation safety. The report released today captures the numerous, consensus findings and more than a dozen unanimous recommendations by the Special Committee.
