Christmas In Tahiti 2019

Oh my, That's right it is almost time to head down to Ken's place in Tahiti again. Christmas In Tahiti Runs from Thanksgiving through New Year's Day. Christmas in Tahiti started way back when KenG WWA358 first retired from WestWind Airlines. Ken bought himself some property in the French Polynesian Islands on the island of Tahiti. The following year the upper managers decided to pay a surprise visit over the Christmas holidays. This became an annual event for upper management and soon grew to include all managers. And now is open to all pilots. P.S. if anyone has more details on the background please contact me so I can preserve the history.

All pilots, regardless of skills are invited to Tahiti for Christmas. Once you have arrived, jump into the forums and add your name to the Tahiti "Guest Register" by copying the message, pasting it in a new post and adding your name to the list. That way, we know you arrived.

American Extends 737-MAX Grounding to 1st Quarter of 2020

American Airlines (AA) announced and indicated today that their return to operation of the B737-MAX is being extended until August as opposed to June as was originally planned and intended. The FAA stated that the process continues but still maintains it's prohibition for the aircraft, in a letter to Civil Aviation Authorities as of March 20,2019. The reason was that the investigations of both the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines had developed new information indicating some similarities between the two accidents. The order still remains in effect.

Santa Ana, CA -- 8 October 2019... EASA (EU) FAA counterparts are currently evaluating the modifications to software submitted by Boeing to the FAA as the European Union considers returning the 737- MAX to flight status in the European Union. EASA officials are saying that the process of evaluation is on-going. Boeing and the FAA appear to want a simultaneous return to service (RTS) as the process moves forward. Current thinking is that the 737-MAX will return to service in the last quarter of 2019 or the first quarter of 2020. The FAA still must work with the air authorities in Brazil, China, Canada, and Russia in their quest to put the 737-MAX back into the air.

Santa Ana, CA -- 14 November 2019 .... Boeing, the FAA, and EASA are looking at returning the MAX to service in the first quarter of 2020. Boeing also received news about wing cracks in the 737 NGX series. Inspections of the NGX have unearthed the problem in the wings. Aircraft are being inspected and grounded as the problem is found in each aircraft.
