Recently, federal regulators appear to be signaling tougher controls on Boeing. It was recently reported that final checks for the Boeing aircraft will be conducted by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration). Federal regulators will no longer allow Boeing to sign off on routine checks related to the aircraft. The FAA's decision to tighten control over Boeing, comes in the wake of two recent Boeing Max 8 crashes.

Recently, a hearing was held before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation committee regarding the failure of Boeing's 737 MAX 8 aircraft. This inquiry comes after the crash of two Boeing 737 Max 8 aircrafts within several months of one another. The first crash occurred near Jakarta, Indonesia when a Lion Airlines flight crashed into the ocean in late 2018. Subsequently, in March of 2019, the same model aircraft operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed in March of 2019.
