The head of the Federal Aviation Administration is continuing to express confidence in the safety of the Boeing 737 Max after new electrical problems with some of the planes. FAA Administrator Stephen Dickson told a House subcommittee on Wednesday that fixing the electrical issues should be “pretty straightforward.” But he’s still giving no date when about 100 grounded Max jets will able to fly again. Dickson says he still has complete confidence in the safety of the Max, which was grounded for 20 months after two deadly crashes. The FAA chief says that since Boeing made changes to the Max, it’s performing as well or better than other planes.
