I still do not understand the statement, but it is only me.
It is very simple dear VV. With a certification by the FAA only, the 777X will see no EIS until it being ordered by an USA airline. Simple.
To see an EIS of the 777X outside the USA, it needs the certification of the relevant authorities there.
I understand that USA citizen have sometimes no idea that there is a world outside the USA. Sometimes they should thing about where all those Boeing frames go to.
In this case, with no orders from the USA, it matters what other regulators think about the 777X.
What Boeing and the FAA have agreed upon sometime before the 737MAX fiasco, when the FAA still had some authority in the world, hardly matters today.
In the 737MAx disaster the FAA showed that it is not a leading
agency any longer in regards of the safety of in the USA produced frames. So other agencies are going to have a look if the 777X is safe and fulfills the rules.
The FAA has a history of improving safety. Are you saying UAE and Qatar authorities will not work with the FAA to ensure a safe aircraft? There were mistakes made, but overall the system is valid.
The FAA is working to repair relations with EASA. If that relationship breaks down, it goes two ways.
You are making assertions beyond current agreements. FAA certifications are still of value. For example the G500/G600 is doing well. Soon the G700 will ship.
The 777x needs to finish pre-flight testing. Any holdups there are either technical or with the FAA.
The USA has an incredibly safe air travel system. The fact that MCAS flaws were missed doesn't invalidate the system. Lessons were learned and applied. The comet taught us about low cycle fatigue. The Electra about high cycle fatigue. The DC-10 about seperation of control systems. The A320 about pilots being able to over-ride FBW. The MAX repeated that lesson.
The FAA had a huge historical
role of improving safety. That is history.
That role went down the drain in recent years. The FAA moved over to it's role promoting and protecting the USA aviation industry. You can only be one thing of the two, a regulator keeping the industry in line or a friend of the industry, protecting it.
I regards to the safety of the 737MAX the FAA failed miserably the role as an agency to promote safety. Instead of leading when safety problems were discovered in regards to the 737MAX, it fought any reaction or grounding. In the end being forced by the USA president to react. It*s sole role seemed to be to protect Boeing. It changed it's tune realizing that no agency would let the 737MAX fly again, without the serious problems being tackled.
The 737 has become a heap of sometimes strange exemptions to safety rules and it will still be after it gets into the air again. The possibility of reducing this heap of exemptions was twice missed with a new version, the NG and than the MAX.
Who should be accepting a FAA certification today, without that agency having had a serious make over and perhaps the role of promoting and protecting the USA aviation industry removed? Safety seems to be an afterthought at the FAA of today.
Trust you have to earn through a long and slow process, but you loose it through one hasty action, by not standing up to your once high standards.
Now we have the 777-9. Boeing was promoting an abbreviated flight test campaign, I assume with the agreement of the FAA., on a frame where actually nothing has been left unchanged from the original 777.
Fuselage changed, stretched, changed frames and bigger windows. New wings. New engines. Changed MLG.
Yes I assume that the UAE and Qatar authorities will have a talk with EASA rather than accepting the certification by the FAA on its merits. I was astonished that some posters did not take it serious, when Emirates talked about not being satisfied with a abbreviated flight test campaign.
I would be astonished if the certification by the agencies outside the USA will accept the FAA certification without a deeper look. If on the other hand the FAA works in this with the other agencies together at the certification, it can look different.
But than hardly applies, what the poster VV implies. That the rules of the certification are long ago agreed upon by the FAA and Boeing and unchangeable.
