"FAA certification as a whole ... is safe. It’s effective,” Moak said. "
"Even if Boeing was required to certify the MAX as a new design, it “would not have produced more rigorous scrutiny ... and would not have produced a safer airplane,” the report added. "
A bit disappointing. If I remember correctly, the EASA was confident that there way of doing certification would have detected the 737-8/9 MAX problem. So why not the FAA ? The FAA will not recover his leadership with such report and recommendations.
I believe that is where the tweaks comes in. To look at more aspects of the human-machine interaction in different failure scenarios.
