Transport committee  We met with CUPE earlier on in this process. I can actually report to the committee that we're meeting with CUPE again—and that was set before their appearance on Tuesday—to outline exactly how...and the conclusions we brought with regard to our validation and what they can expec

Transport committee  We need to know the information in order to certify a product, the full set of information. As we've described here today, when information is not known by a validating authority, things can go wrong, and in this instance, something did go wrong. Our expectation from a manufactur

November 26th, 2020Committee meeting

Nicholas Robinson

Transport committee  Absolutely. I take the point that was made, Mr. Chair. The terminology of “concern paper” needs work, and you may see changes moving forward on that. A concern paper, if it's related to a serious safety risk, would not remain open if that safety risk hasn't been addressed. How

Transport committee  If we had found anything in the validation process that was a concern, that addressed a safety risk that hadn't been finalized or brought to a conclusion in our validation process, the aircraft wouldn't have been validated in Canada.

Transport committee  I can identify that I saw that two family members, very key representatives of the families that were impacted by Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, have called for a public inquiry. They did so on Tuesday. They have discussed that previously as well. Those are the two that I made mo

Transport committee  I don't believe commercial pressures are put on the process within Canada. We do prioritize as Mr. Turnbull identified. We do need to know, with regard to a validation, when a product is expected to be or wished to be used in Canada. That will allow us to prioritize. We are worki

Transport committee  That is an issue that, from an information perspective, the state of design will have to address, with regard to how those questions are brought forward amongst staff. When we are looking at a product, we are holding it against a set of regulations. The internal dynamics of Boein

Nicholas Robinson

Transport committee  This incident has provided us a much greater understanding of the process that occurs between the FAA and Boeing. As was mentioned, the congressional report has made public the issues and the problems that are happening with that relationship, but I will emphasize that if we lo

November 26th, 2020Committee meeting

Nicholas Robinson

Transport committee  I'll begin by reviewing what Mr. Turnbull provided a few moments ago. The concern paper is a note. It's to determine that there has been an area where further clarification is needed in order for the validating authority to fully understand how the certifying authority has said t

Transport committee  The transport airplane risk assessment methodology, also called the TARAM, is an analysis tool the FAA uses to quantify unsafe conditions when safety-related occurrences are reported. Transport Canada was made aware of the existence of the FAA TARAM analysis but did not receive t

Nicholas Robinson

Transport committee  I am extremely proud of the national aircraft certification team and the operational evaluation team in this process. From the beginning, in April 2019, we laid out the key areas that we needed to come to an absolute understanding on from the FAA and Boeing. Those included the ac

November 26th, 2020Committee meeting

Nicholas Robinson

Transport committee  I'll refer back to the variety of reports and reviews that have been undertaken to look at that exact question: What went wrong? My colleague Mr. Turnbull has already highlighted one piece that went wrong and that needs to change, which is how we look at the incorporation of cha

November 26th, 2020Committee meeting

Nicholas Robinson

Transport committee  I'll address that question. When it comes to the validation of the 737 Max, the national aircraft certification team within civil aviation, which is led by Dave, will complete its full review. They will provide the recommendation and the assessment against our regulations of whe

Transport committee  Mr. Turnbull was in the national aircraft certification director position. I was not in the director general position.

November 26th, 2020Committee meeting

Nicholas Robinson

Transport committee  We've spoken to a lot of individual Canadians seeking information about our review, and we provided that information to those individuals. I'm not particularly aware of any experts or Canadian aeronautical organizations that are seeking a review. I would refer to the primary asso
