Lawmakers on 25 September scrutinised the US Federal Aviation Administration's oversight of the aircraft safety certification process, including whether the agency misled the US Senate about the qualifications of inspectors to certify and assess pilot training for Boeing 737 Max aircraft. FAA deputy administrator Dan Elwell testified during a hearing of the House Committee on Appropriations that the agency did not provide misleading information about inspector training in May in response to an inquiry from Senator Roger Wicker. Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence tells Cirium she remains concerned about the FAA's dismissal of the special counsel's concerns, adding "the FAA cannot just write off an auditing body."
