Boeing releases statement on 737 MAX software

Posted 27 June 2019 · Add Comment

Boeing has issued a statement regarding the software on the 737 MAX aircraft.

 

The manufacturer said: “The safety of our airplanes is Boeing’s highest priority. During the FAA’s review of the 737 MAX software update and recent simulator sessions, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) identified an additional requirement that it has asked the company to address through the software changes that the company has been developing for the past eight months.

“The FAA review and process for returning the 737 MAX to passenger service are designed to result in a thorough and comprehensive assessment. Boeing agrees with the FAA's decision and request, and is working on the required software.

Addressing this condition will reduce pilot workload by accounting for a potential source of uncommanded stabiliser motion. Boeing will not offer the 737 MAX for certification by the FAA until we have satisfied all requirements for certification of the MAX and its safe return to service.”
