U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said he is keeping his finger on the pulse of the Boeing Dreamliner probe during a speech at the Aero Club of Washington on Wednesday. SOUNDBITE: RAY LAHOOD, U.S. TRANSPORTATION SECRETARY (ENGLISH) SAYING: "We are working diligently with Boeing to figure out the problem and to find a solution. Our goal is to get this done as quickly as possible, but we must be confident that the problems are corrected before we can move forward." LaHood said Boeing is cooperating 100 %. The secretary was accompanied by Michael Huerta, the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration that operates under the U.S. Department of Transportation and regulates civil aviation. SOUNDBITE: MICHAEL HUERTA, ADMINISTRATOR, FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION (ENGLISH) SAYING: "We are doing everything that we can to support investigation of not just the battery, but the battery in a relation to the power system, and, what I talked about before, certification, manufacturing, assembly process, and all with the goal of identifying root cause. Once we identify root cause, we will take appropriate mitigating actions." LaHood promised total transparency. SOUNDBITE: RAY LAHOOD, U.S. TRANSPORTATION SECRETARY (ENGLISH) SAYING: "We will disclose everything that is brought out in the top to the bottom review. There will be total transparency. People will know what we looked at, what we found, if something needed to be corrected. There will be total transparency." And he confirmed his faith in Boeing. SOUNDBITE: RAY LAHOOD, U.S. TRANSPORTATION SECRETARY (ENGLISH) SAYING: "I have confidence in Boeing's ability to create safe aircraft. Boeing is a very good company, one of America's finest companies. There is no dispute about that. The deal to our job today is to make sure every aspect of an aircraft meets the highest possible standards. We need to get to the bottom of the recent issues with the batteries in the 787 and ensure their safety before these aircraft can be put in service." The Boeing Dreamliners have been grounded for a week- and there is still no timetable for getting them back into the air.
