Re: Boeing blames the "pilots" again?
Didn't the same thing happen in a movie where the pilot had to land the plane in a river in NY - Sully? In the movie, the panel did not disclose to Sully that it took the pilots 6-7 times during the simulation that they had failed and crashed the plane numerous times in their simulation. 

This does not surprise me, because when the birds hit the engines and the pilot experienced failure, he reacted in the best manner to protect the passengers during a stressful time. In this instance, it took them 13 months to share information with the public about their lack of security testing because they wanted to get their stories right before presenting them to the public. They wanted to find a scapegoat before they brought this to the public's attention. 

From the findings Rapid7 submitted to the airline industry, they should present information much like "Project-Zero - Google's Security Team", they offered their help and they shunned them away like small children. The way to deal with that is to take their findings public so this does not happen again. 
His firm decided not to publicly name the affected vendors since it was an underlying CAN bus issue not specific to the vendors' equipment Kiley had hacked. Even so, he doesn't know whether the vendors actually fixed the flaws he found.
"I let the vendors know what I did with the equipment, and they didn't indicate what they would do or change. They thanked us and sent us along our way," Kiley says.

Boeing blames the "pilots" again?
Boeing lost 2 planes and did not disclose 737 MAX alert software issue to FAA for 13 months. 
Only after China had grounded the aircraft, they've published some details of new system requirements for the problematic MCAS software that caused these crashes.

"Our extensive testing confirmed that existing defenses in the broader 787 network prevent the scenarios claimed." 🕵️🤷‍♂️

Aviation Security Opportunities
Interesting problem space - tough GTM and sales cycle for independent startup, but seems like there is some opportunity for innovation, here.
