Dear European Aviation Safety Agency,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

Technical correspondence with the FAA pertaining to the certification of the Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) on the Boeing 737 MAX (including demonstration of compliance against FAR/CS 25.671 and 25.672, together with description of the specific flight crew training required for MCAS).

Also, any documents detailing safety concerns relating to the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft following the fatal accidents on 29th October 2018 (Lion Air) and 10th March 2019 (Ethiopian Airlines).

Yours faithfully,

Joji Waites
British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA)

Dear European Aviation Safety Agency,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Certification Documents relating to B737 MAX MCAS System'.

In relation to the following comments from Ms Rostren (Head of Legal Department, EASA):

“cooperation in good faith and mutual confidence between the involved parties are indispensable in order to enable the different stakeholders to express themselves freely and this atmosphere needs to be protected from any interference”

and

“we believe that the disclosure of documents in EASA's possession falling under this request, that are mainly of highly technical nature, could give rise to out of context or incorrect interpretations, and that would jeopardize the completion of these investigations”

Pilots are of course stakeholders in this issue and we would be prepared to enter into a confidentiality agreement so that the investigation is not jeopardised. For these reasons we wish to make a confirmatory application.

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/cert...

Yours faithfully,

Joji Waites
