CEO of Boeing admits errors after two deadly 737 MAX plane crashes for the first time

Boeing admits its mistakes, Dennis Muhlenberg, CEO, The Boeing Company, stated during a hearing in the U.S. Senate on a case of two plane crashes involving a 737 MAX aircraft last year, according to Euronews.

“I personally and Boeing deeply and sincerely regret what happened,” he said.

Mr. Muhlenberg acknowledged that airlines were not sufficiently aware of the features of the 737 MAX pilot control system. The crash of the Indonesian Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines airliners resulted in a software crash. These air crashes altogether killed 346 people.

“These air crashes made us think and change. We made mistakes, but we are correcting. We are learning, we are not stopping to study,” Mr. Muilenburg said and expressed his hope for the return of liners with an improved security system in the United States by the end of 2019.

At the same time, he will have to explain to the congressmen why for several months The Boeing Co. had hidden from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) personal correspondence of one of the test pilots, who back in 2016 pointed out the problems of the 737 MAX model.
