The President of the United States Donald Trump intends to nominate the former Manager of Delta Airlines Steve Dixon as the head of the Federal aviation administration.
Such information was distributed by the press service of the White House, specifying that Dixon will be nominated for a term of five years. Since January last year, acting head of this structure is Daniel Elwell.
Previously, the newspaper The Wall Street Journal reported that this decision was taken after the recent crash of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 in Ethiopia.
Recall, the plane of the airline Ethiopian Airlines crashed on March 10 near the capital of Ethiopia. Died all, who were on Board-157 people. In October last year, a similar Boeing 737 MAX 8 Indonesian airline Lion Air fell into the Javanese sea. Then the victims were 189 people.
After the tragedy in Ethiopia, the Federal aviation administration suspended the flights of Boeing 737 MAX Airliners in American airspace, like many other countries. The management of the Boeing Corporation announced yesterday that it is taking measures to ensure the safety of the operation of the 737 MAX type Airliners.
