US aviation authorities offer to recover another $ 5.4 million from Boeing

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposed recovering US $ 5.4 million from The Boeing Co. for allegedly installing low-quality parts for 178 737 MAXs, which the air companies presented as ready for certification, the organization’s website said in its statement, Trend reports citing RIA Novosti, Russia.

“The proposed administrative fine is additional to the previously proposed administrative fine exceeding US $ 3.9 million… A letter about this was sent in early December 2019,” the document says.

The last fine was announced on December 7th. The company must respond to each of the regulator’s letters within 30 days after receiving them.

In June, an U.S. regulator reported that Boeing had found deflected rails of non-defensible rails in dozens of aircraft of the 737NG and 737MAX models.

Flights of the Boeing 737 MAX were suspended in the United States and many other countries in March 2019 after two such airliners crashed. Possible errors in the operation of the maneuvering correction system were identified. Boeing is addressing these shortcomings and has updated the pilot training program.
