News about Flight Safety Detectives Greg Feith and John Goglia
“The customer is spending an inordinate amount of time working through issues that should not have made it out of the factory.” – John Goglia
John Goglia talks about the use of composites in aircraft manufacture in this Los Angles Times article.
“There has always been a concern about composites if they catch fire because the fumes are toxic,” said John Goglia, a former member of the National Transportation Safety Board, which investigates accidents in the United States. “That threat continues as long as the airplane burns — actually after, because those little fibers might be floating around in the smoke.”
John Goglia is one of the aviation experts tapped for CBC’s coverage of the Boeing 737 Max.
Former NTSB member John Goglia told CBC’s As It Happens earlier this month said the panel blowout was just “another black eye for Boeing.” He said believed that Boeing has lost touch with its products, especially at the higher levels of the company.
“Boeing is not the same Boeing as I grew up with,” he said.
Goglia said if he was in charge of Boeing, he’d hire at least 100 new inspectors to get the focus back on quality.
“They’ve got to get the products on firm ground,” he said. “Every few months there seems to be a new revelation about issues.”
Greg Feith is a quoted expert in the New York Times article, “Boeing Again Under Scrutiny After Latest 737 Max Problem.”
“This is the kind of thing where, until you really get into the investigation — you identify all the facts, conditions and circumstances of this particular event — do you determine whether this is just a one-off or a systemic problem,” said Greg Feith, an aviation security expert and former N.T.S.B. investigator.
Greg Feith adds expert analysis to the CBS News Chicago report on the latest developments with the 737 MAX 9 aircraft.
On Friday January 19, Prince Harry he was inducted into the “Living Legends of Aviation” and Greg Feith was there to appreciate his significance in aviation.
Greg was honored by the organization in 2016 after a lifetime in aviation safety. He praised the induction of Harry for “drawing young people to the industry, and that’s what it is all about, getting young people involved, and Prince Harry, and his name and accomplishments, draws attention to an organization like this”.
Former NTSB investigator Greg Feith joins CNBC ‘Squawk Box’ to discuss the latest in the safety probe of the Boeing 737 Max-9, quality control issues at Boeing, what’s at stake for the company, and more.
