Boeing Employees’ Communication – level 1

15-01-2020 07:00

Boeing has a lot of problems with its 737 Max plane. There are two accidents. Almost 350 people die.

Officials give out some worrying communication between Boeing employees. Some employees speak about how they hide the truth before the US regulators. Other employees speak about the simulator that trains the 737 Max pilots. They say that it is not safe. In another communication, employees joke about the plane’s design.

Officials say that Boeing tries to hide information from the regulators and people. Boeing is not happy about the messages. The company wants to get the 737 Max certified again. and to train all 737 Max pilots on a simulator.

Difficult words: regulator (a government official who makes sure people are following the government’s rules), simulator (a machine that works like a real machine and people use it to learn how to use the machine), certify (to show something is following the rules).
