Boeing Employees’ Communication – level 2

15-01-2020 07:00

Internal communications between Boeing employees bring more questions about its 737 Max plane.

Some employees joked that they deceived the US regulators during the plane development. In another communication, two employees spoke about the simulator that trains 737 Max pilots and its safety, and other employees criticized the plane’s design.

The government is investigating the design and certification of the plane and it gave out the communication. Officials say that there was an organized effort to hide some information from the regulators and the public.

Boeing said that the messages were unacceptable, and the company wants to get the 737 Max certified again.

Difficult words: internal (within a company or a group), deceive (to make someone believe something that is not true), certification (proof that something is done according to rules), effort (an activity that is needed to get something), certify (to prove that something is done according to rules).
