US: FAA strengthens airplanes review
Authority works to reform aircraft certification process
In the United States, the use of Tabs in aircraft certification is being expanded. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) made this known, saying it is expanding the use of Technical Advisory Board (Tab) advice to ensure a "consistent and comprehensive approach for all aircraft certification projects".
The US civil aviation authority convened the Tab soon after the second Boeing 737 MAX crash in March 2019. Today, FAA is reviewing a number of issues involving the US manufacturer's airplanes, including airworthiness certificates for the 787 Dreamliner aircraft. It now plans to introduce new scorecards to be completed at the beginning of the certification process, particularly for those aircraft generally referred to, as being derived from previous generation models.
