Boeing CEO faces another grilling on Capitol Hill over Max

Boeing Co Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg was repeatedly hammered by US lawmakers at a hearing on Wednesday over his compensation and key mistakes in the development of the 737 MAX that he newly acknowledged, in the wake of deadly crashes.

DeFazio displayed slides of internal Boeing documents and emails - some never before seen publicly - raising questions about the development of MCAS, the flight control system linked to both crashes.

One document showed an MCAS failure alert was not added to the plane's control panel and another warned if a pilot took longer than 10 seconds to activate the anti-ditch software it could lead to a "catastrophic" failure even though the standard reaction time was four seconds.

Multiple members of the Committee called on Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg to step down. Muilenburg mentioned the corporate had repeatedly requested the identical query. He's also trying to salvage the US industrial titan's reputation following months of bruising disclosures about shortcomings in the design and certification of the Max, Boeing's best-selling jet.

"The design and certification of the MCAS did not adequately consider the likelihood of loss of control of the aircraft", the report mentioned.

DeFazio also asked why Boeing approved MCAS when it was vulnerable to a single point of failure.

Muilenburg quickly listed Boeing's failure to disclose for months that it had made optional a cockpit alert flagging disagreement between the airflow sensors. "We got that wrong", he mentioned. (D-NJ) said he was upset to learn that Muilenburg had received a $15 million dollar bonus after Boeing planes killed 346 people.

But Muilenburg deflected a follow-up question on whether he could name specific individuals who were to blame for these mistakes, saying larger "teams" were responsible.

Also, while showing his sympathies to the family members of 737 Max crash victims who attended the hearing, Muilenburg only restricted his reflections to technical, instead of institutional, problems behind the accidents.

Boeing hopes to gain FAA approval to return the 737 MAX - which has been grounded for eight months - to service by the end of the year, though worldwide regulators say they may need more time than their USA counterparts to review and certify changes made by Boeing.

On Tuesday, Senators focused their questions on Boeing's knowledge of problems with the MCAS sensor. Sen.

Boeing hopes to win approval from the Federal Aviation Administration before year-end to get the Max back in the air.

Muilenburg told reporters he believes the allegation was in response to concerns about a change in the increase of the production rate. He said Boeing officials had asked themselves "over and over" again why they didn't ground the plane sooner. "It was tough to hear", he mentioned, including the corporate was making "the fixes we need to make". It will take data from the attack sensors and not let MCAS activate a couple of times before a situation has been resolved.

"As additional reviews are complete, we'll take additional actions", Muilenburg said. "We're improving and we're learning", he mentioned. Lawmakers also pointed to a series of text messages citing extremely erratic software behavior in flight simulations in 2016. Tuesday's hearing represents Boeing's broadest acceptance of responsibility that it made mistakes, but Muilenburg stopped short of what some lawmakers and family members had sought.
