Boeing publishes troubling internal documents regarding the 737 Max

The employees appear to discuss instances in which the company concealed such problems from the FAA during the regulator's certification of the simulators.

The messages also show attempts to duck regulatory scrutiny and employees ridiculing the plane, the company, the Federal Aviation Administration and foreign aviation regulators.

"Would you put your family on a Max simulator trained aircraft?"

Boeing said Friday it's seeking approval from USA officials to help with the investigation into the deadly crash of one of its 737-800 passenger jets flown by Ukraine International Airlines. "No", the colleague responded.

"Following the simulator session, the Flight Standardization Board will release a report for a public comment period, followed by final approval of the training", Boeing had said on Nov 11, 2019. The two disasters killed 346. It was later determined that a new software system on the plane forced it to nose dive, causing both accidents.

Orders for new jets have dried up and existing ones have been grounded while the company and regulators investigate.

Boeing officials, though, were certainly aware of how the public release of the documents could impair its already badly damaged reputation. "We'll go face to face with any regulator who tries to make that a requirement".

The spokesperson added: "These communications do not reflect the company we are and need to be, and they are completely unacceptable". Most of these employees work in the company's Renton facility in Washington where its prized 737 Max aircrafts are manufactured.

Serbia have become the second team to enter the quarter-finals of the ongoing ATP Cup after they edged out France to top Group A. After this contest, the head to head between Djokovic and Monfils is 16-0 for Novak.

The Federal Aviation Administration and US Congress were given unredacted versions of the communications last month. "While it is also clear from these emails that the problems did not merely stem from a lone Boeing employee who uses colorful language in his communications".

"This will ultimately include disciplinary or other personnel action, once the necessary reviews are completed".

Boeing said that the communication revealed in the documents were not in line with the company's values and are taking appropriate action.

The first crash involving a 737 Max aircraft happened on October 29, 2018. "Any potential safety deficiencies identified in the documents have been addressed". "We remain confident in the regulatory process for qualifying these simulators". It said it came to the decision because it is unclear when Boeing will resume making the once in-demand aircraft.

Grounded Boeing 737 Max airplanes crowd a parking area in Seattle in June. The Kansas Republican said he contacted President Donald Trump to let him know that "everything is not OK" in his home state or elsewhere due to the continued grounding of the 737 Max. It was a particular selling point for Boeing, which faced significant competitive pressure from its chief European rival, Airbus. These simulators aren't simple computer set-ups - they're detailed and expensive recreations of planes that are propped on hydraulic supports so that pilots can get a true-to-life feel of the aircraft.

"I'll be shocked if the FAA passes this turd".

Boeing added that some of the messages "raise questions" about the company's interactions with the FAA around discussion about the simulator.
