While Boeing’s CEO seemed to initially blame aircraft pilots for the tragic incidents involving the 737 MAX, a watchdog report has revealed that the manufacturer actually failed to share critical information regarding flight control software to regulators.

In this episode of World of Aviation, hosts Adam Thorn and Christian “Boo” Boucousis unpack who is truly responsible, why the aircraft was so popular in the first place, and what needs to happen to get the plane back in the air.

They also discuss an astounding fraudulent licence discovery out of Pakistan, whether the industry is over-reliant on automation, and the impacts of the recent COVID-19 spikes in Australia and the UK on aviation.
