Boeing to submit final 737 Max fix for FAA review in ‘coming weeks’

The plane has been grounded since mid-March following the deadly accidents where a part of the aircraft’s flight control system is actually suspected of causing, at least in part, the crashes in which killed all 346 people aboard the jets.

Boeing believes the item has solved issues with the 737 Max automated stall prevention system by updating the plane’s software, cockpit alerts in addition to pilot training.

As Boeing in addition to investigators studied the brief flights of the Lion Air plane in which plunged into the Java Sea in Indonesia on Oct. 29 in addition to the Ethiopian Airlines crash on March 10, the scariest similarity was the way both flights pitched up in addition to down before crashing.

Later Monday, Boeing said the item continues to work with the FAA in addition to various other regulatory agencies worldwide to identify in addition to address all issues.

“Safety is actually our first priority, in addition to we will take a thorough in addition to methodical approach to the development in addition to testing of the update to ensure we take the time to get the item right,” Boeing said in a statement.

Many believe the automated stall prevention system — the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, or MCAS — continually pushed the nose of the plane down despite the pilots repeatedly trying to correct the move. The completely new software will allow the system to push the nose of the plane lower just once in addition to only for 10 seconds at most.

The airplane maker unveiled some of its fixes to pilots, regulators in addition to the media last week.

Boeing’s stock dipped less than a percent in extended trading after closing up more than 2 percent Monday.
