European Union regulator to clear Boeing 737 MAX flights next week

European Union regulator to clear Boeing 737 MAX flights next week”

A total of 346 people died in the two accidents.Patrick Ky, the executive director of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, said on Tuesday it would publish an updated airworthiness directive next week, following in the footsteps of regulators in the United States and Brazil.The 737 Max will be able to return to service as soon as Boeing has updated software and rewired some components, and airlines have trained their pilots in the changes. Next week, the flight ban on aircraft that have been on the ground for almost two years will be lifted for safety reasons.

The planes were grounded in March 2019 following the crashes of a Lion Air flight near Jakarta on October 29, 2018, and an Ethiopian Airlines flight on March 10, 2019, killing a total of 346 people.

The crashes exposed serious flaws with the plane's flight-control system and the jet's certification process.

The Boeing 737 Max-8 has been cleared to fly in Canada, some 2 years after the model was grounded around the world. These modifications relate to the 737 MAX's "erroneous maneuvering characteristics augmentation system" ("MCAS") activation, which renders flight crews unable to control the aircraft's flight path.

According to Transport Canada, over 15,000 review hours took place to ensure the Boeing 737 MAX was safe enough to return to the commercial aviation space across the country.

On 20 January, Transport Canada has made a decision to cancel the existing Notice to Airmen (NOTAM), which banned the commercial operation of the aircraft in Canadian airspace.

Three Canadian airlines operate the Max 8, Westjet, Air Canada, and Sunwing.

When EASA published its proposed air worthiness directive for the Max in November, Ky said the agency's review of the aircraft "began with the MCAS but went far beyond".
