As more and more countries have continued to ground the Boeing 737 Max 8, the acting administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration(FAA), Daniel K. Elwell, has said following a review of these airplanes, the agency has found “no basis” to ground them. The Federal Aviation Administration of the United States is a national authority with powers to regulate all aspects of civil aviation.
Elwell said in a statement said, “The FAA continues to review extensively all available data and aggregate safety performance from operators and pilots of the Boeing 737 MAX. Thus far, our review shows no systematic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft. Nor have other civil aviation authorities provided data to us that would warrant action. In the course of our urgent review of data on the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash, if any issues affecting the continued airworthiness of the aircraft are identified, the FAA will take immediate and appropriate action.”
