Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Administrator Stephen Dickson testified before the Senate Commerce, Science and Technology Committee about airplane safety standards and oversight. The committee was investigating the FAA’s safety certification process after two deadly crashes involving the Boeing 737 Max aircraft in 2019. Administrator Dickson confirmed his commitment to fixing the certification process, but Committee Chair Roger Wicker (R-MS) expressed disappointment, saying, “The FAA has a number of serious problems to address.” Senator Wicker accused the FAA of stonewalling the committee’s investigation and urged the agency to conduct stronger oversight over the safety certification process. Mr. Dickson also discussed the FAA’s position on wearing face masks to protect against the spread of COVID-19 on flights. He declined to require passengers to wear masks, but encouraged airlines to follow guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). close
