An additional quote from a recent letter to the OIG, and my representatives in Congress, fitting for this date. (Don't forget to still write to your representatives. Do it now before you forget. The links to do so are on this site's home page at the bottom of the page. Your help in ensuring the reform of the FAA and the safety of yourself and your family and friends depends on your doing so to end the fraud at your, not Boeing's, FAA. The current "working together" system between Boeing and the FAA that increases the effciency of "pushing garbage airplanes out the door" (as a fellow inspector called it) for extra Boeing bottom line profit at the expense of your safety must be ended, and the FAA's duty to ensure safety and related ensurance of compliance with a Production Approval Holder's quality system must begin to be carried out, even at Boeing. The current mirroring of the fraud I saw every day in the Boeing "quality system" must be ended ASAP within the FAA that should be ensuring Boeing's compliance with it's Type and Production Certificate's requirements, but currently only feigns to do so:
As of the writing of this letter, almost exactly one year from the last torpedoing of my report, I have seen no improvements at all in our Quality System from the horrific condition it was in as I documented carefully in my report, which I began over two years ago after an impetus that I can only describe as my own personal "September 11th," as moving and horrifying to me as was the September 11th attacks were to all of us. Except the date was January 11th, 2002, in my circumstance, and it was fully documented in my first report to the MIDO. It was the day I was fully explained our Quality System as BCA management viewed it, and implemented it. Once "faced with the facts of Quality Assurance life" at Boeing, I knew I had to do something about it immediately, preferably before the inevitable deaths and injuries that would arise from such a totally corrupt system as described to me by my Boeing Quality Assurance management as the way I was to perform my job (I being one of the few inspectors at that point that had not yet been turned by our management into a crony of that that corrupt quality system in place at Boeing that I had refused to fully acknowledged the existence of until that fateful meeting).
