U.S. aviation regulator boosting safety staff

The acting head of the Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday the agency plans add nearly 300 employees to its safety office as it ramps up oversight following two fatal Boeing 737 MAX crashes.


Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen told the Senate Commerce Committee the aviation safety office, which currently has 7,489 employees, plans to have 7,775 by the end of September. The committee is holding a hearing on FAA safety reforms directed by Congress in 2020 after the 737 MAX crashes killed 346 people in 2018 and 2019.
