The Boeing 737 MAX can again be admired in European airspace from January. That said Director Patrick Ky of the European regulator EASA on Saturday. After two crashes, the plane has been on the ground worldwide for almost two years. Earlier this week the American counterpart gave EASA the green light for the return of the 737 MAX.
Ky said last month that the problem plane is considered completely safe again and the paperwork will be finalized. According to him, all research shows that the aircraft can be put back into service.
The American aviation authority FAA gave the green light for Boeing’s popular aircraft last week. The FAA expects the plane to be back in the air next month or early next year. The disturbed aircraft has been on the ground for almost two years after two fatal crashes. A total of 346 inmates were killed.
After the second accident in March 2019, flights by plane were banned worldwide. It later emerged that the disasters were caused by a flawed security system that was pushing the aircraft’s nose down. This error was corrected with a software update. Before the aircraft can take off again, the pilots have to complete additional training and the manuals have to be adapted.
