The United States House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure has requested interviews with Boeing employees amidst the ongoing 737 MAX crisis. The request comes after the committee has already been supplied the company’s documents and the perspectives of senior management.
The committee believes that Boeing employees can provide information about the design, development, and certification of the 737 MAX.
Boeing chairman and CEO Dennis Muilenburg is urged to make the employees available for interviews “as soon as possible”, as the next committee hearing is planned “in the coming weeks”.
This is the second attempt by the committee to gather information from Boeing employees, although this time in a different format. In April, the committee issued a call for whistle-blowers addressing, “any current or former” Boeing employees. It also established a webpage and encouraged any current or former officials of Boeing and FAA that were familiar with the FAA’s certification programme to share any information that would be of use to the committee in terms of the 737 MAX.
