Daily Newsletter | July 18, 2019
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has alerted operators of the Airbus A321neo of a potential “excessive pitch” problem. The issue, as many aviation professionals have noted, is similar to the one that Boeing’s MCAS software on the 737 MAX was developed to address.
After years of negotiations, the U.S. authorities finally began the process of excluding Turkey from the F-35 program due to its decision to acquire the Russian S-400 air defense system. Russia reacted by offering Turkey to buy its Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets instead.
Boeing is to allocate half of the previously announced $100 million fund for “near term assistance” of families of Lion Air JT610 and Ethiopian Airlines ET302 victims. The U.S. plane maker made the announcement on July 17, 2019 ‒ the same day that family members gave testimony at U.S. Congressional hearing, expressing their doubts about Boeing’s sincerity.
