Boeing CEO to answer Questions on Capitol Hill

In light of allegations that the aircraft manufacturer prioritized profits over safety, Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun is scheduled to offer an apology to crash victims’ families on Tuesday during a Senate grilling.

The Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations held a hearing in April, during which a Boeing engineer testified that he was reprimanded for raising safety concerns about the company’s best-selling 787 Dreamliner and 777. The hearing, titled “Boeing’s Broken Safety Culture,” follows that session.

With his appearance before a congressional panel, Calhoun will be testifying for the first time since a frightening mid-flight incident on a 737 MAX in January sent the company reeling. Investigators from the United States are still investigating the Alaska Airlines incident involving an emergency landing due to a fuselage panel blowing out.

According to a subcommittee memo, the Senate committee received additional complaints from Boeing employees on Tuesday morning. Among these was an official filing from a whistleblower who expressed concern that Boeing’s permissive policies regarding using defective or damaged parts could “lead to a catastrophic event. According to statements released before the hearing, Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, who will preside over the meeting, claimed that the long list of employee grievances demonstrated a culture “where those who speak up are silenced and sidelined while blame is pushed down to the factory floor.
