According to WSJ, we are talking about “production problems” that occurred in the period from 2015 to 2019.
Boeing has agreed to pay $17 million to settle civil sanctions imposed on the American corporation by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) For manufacturing omissions made in the manufacture of aircraft models of the Boeing 737. This was reported by The Wall Street Journal on Thursday, citing a statement from the FAA.
This, as the newspaper writes, is about “production problems” that occurred in the period from 2015 to 2019 during the construction of a narrow-body passenger liner and revealed during the tightening of the FAA control measures for Boeing-produced aircraft, often used on international routes.
As part of the settlement agreement, the corporation agreed to increase the level of quality control of its products and pledged to submit its quality assessments to the federal Agency for analysis. The latter, as the FAA told the newspaper, is a fairly rare, but not unprecedented requirement. The FAA also indicated that additional penalties of $10 million could be imposed on Boeing if the corporation does not comply with the provisions of the settlement agreement.
