NEW-YORK, November 5. /TASS/. Boeing Corporation has not yet commented on suspension of the certificate of all Boeing-737 in Russia, Boeing’s representative told TASS on Thursday.
TASS source said it is better to approach Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) or the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency for comments. The company has nothing more to say so far, she added.
The Interstate Aviation Committee said earlier in the letter it suspended the certificate for all Boeing-737 aircraft in Russia until receiving a joint notice of the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency and the US Federal Aviation Administration on the aircraft airworthiness.
IAC letter signed by the Air Register Chairman Vladimir Bespalov says Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency was in correspondence with the relevant US authority concerning urgent improvements of Boeing-737 aircraft rudder control system.
This aircraft type is at the same time one of the most frequently used by Russian air carriers.
