Boeing chief executive Dennis Muilenburg will testify before the US House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure on 30 October, addressing issues related to the 737 Max.

The company’s chief engineer of commercial airplanes John Hamilton and chief 737 pilot Jennifer Henderson will join Muilenburg before the committee, the transportation panel says.

Boeing did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

News of the appearance by Boeing executives at the House Transportation hearing comes a week after the committee’s leaders disclosed they had asked Boeing’s CEO to testify.

Congress has held several hearings related to its 737 Max inquiry in recent months, but Boeing executives had not testified.

Those who have appeared include representatives from trade associations and pilots’ unions, relatives of crash victims and the Federal Aviation Administration’s deputy director Dan Elwell.

Boeing confirms Muilenburg will testify. “We will continue to cooperate with Congress and regulatory authorities as we focus on safely returning the Max to service,” the company says.
