There is some serious fault with the rudder of 737. Enhancements have been made but I was thinking what will the developing countries do who still use the old 737.

Don't you think that is so risky?

Yes, this is a known defect known as Aircraft Stalling. Some aircraft may be more prone than others.

Rudder malfunction is a known old defect with no known design solution.

Tough costwise for those developing countries to update designs.

I read some of the link, and will read more.

There was some flaw for sure. In most developing countries airlines still have the same old Boeing 737 fleet that could be dangerous.

With trans-atlantic travel and na - asian travel at its all time high, airlines around the world are faced with increased demand for their aircraft. Will they be able to meet the demand keeping 100 % certain that the aircraft meet the quality requirements. Who will win the classic argument of production numbers Vs quality numbers? If production numbers win, then airline safety is not 100 % assured. Statistics proves that flying is more safer than driving.

The FAA grounded AA for wiring safety. AA may go bankrupt!

My passion is quality, maybe a move to Aviation is required. Does Aviation industry require security clearances for a citizen of Canada?

How does one define when the aircraft is aged, and should be retired?

My final year engineering project was on aircraft maintenance of Airbus A 320 aircraft. Through parallel processing, correct level of inventory for spares, rotables, and consumables, and training curriculum we projected savings in maintenance time requirements (avionics, airframes, and engines) for the aircraft freeing up the aircraft for more hours in the air. Interest has been on and off on aircraft since then.

How have others gotten into Aeronautics or Aircraft? How is Boeing doing (big sales to India finalized)?

The six day war is an affront to the pride of Muslim nations.

My eyes checked 20/20 last month. Somehow in India was shortsighted disqualifying me. Engineering is hard work!

You dont have to anser but patriotic feelings, service to Islam could not keep you in? Ground crew or pilot?
