Boeing's 737 MAX gets green lights from FAA
- 8 months ago
FAA regulators have announced that they have no current plans to ground Boeing’s 737 MAX airliners following the deadly crash in Ethiopia, and expect by the end of April to mandate a software fix for an automated flight-control system that played a central role in the recent Lion Air crash of the same model.
In an update on Ethiopian Airlines crash, the Federal Aviation Administration told regulators and airlines worldwide: “This investigation has just begun and to date we have not been provided data to draw any conclusions or take any actions.”
That stands in contrast to decisions by regulators in China and Indonesia, where the Lion Air crash occurred, to temporarily ground all 737 MAX variants following Sunday’s crash, which killed all 157 people on board.
Several airlines have also decided unilaterally to stop flying the airplane model for the time being.
