FAA expects Boeing to submit 737 MAX fix soon for approval

The 737 Max consists of four versions all of which have the MCAS system. The 737 Max 8 was involved both crashes.                  Boeing

The 737 MAX 8 is now grounded worldwide after the March crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 that killed all 157 people onboard and drew scrutiny to the new Boeing model's anti-stall system, which investigators believe may have brought the jet down.

Boeing is now updating the automated flight-control system, and Mr Elwell said he expected the company to complete its work "in the next week or so", after which the FAA will analyse the software changes and conduct test flights.

The pilots pressed Boeing officials why the planes were still in the air and why an emergency hadn't been announced.

That's the same day that the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration will host about 50 foreign counterparts in Texas to discuss plans for reviewing a software update and new pilot training for the Max.

A Boeing 737 MAX 8 aeroplane built for India-based Jet Airways lands from a test flight at Boeing Field in Seattle.

The union representing American Airlines pilots has the same question.

"What I'm asking you to do if you're confirmed is be pissed off that 346 people died. and that was preventable", Cruz told Dickson. He promised senators that he would make sure the FAA does not become captive to the industry it regulates.

Larsen, however, added a note of economic urgency to the FAA's upcoming decision on the plane's safety.

"Whatever corrective actions need to be taken or process changes need to be put in place, I can guarantee you that those will be accomplished", Dickson said.

Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Peter DeFazio said Thursday (NZT) during a hearing that he hoped the aircraft manufacturer begins complying with requests for data on the plane's design soon as lawmakers grilled United States aviation regulators on the jetliner. "We also don't want to fix the wrong things".

Victor Vescovo sets new record for deepest manned solo dive
The last challenge will be to reach the bottom of the Molloy Deep in the Arctic Ocean, an expedition planned for August this year. During the deepest dive on April 28, which he undertook alone, Vescovo spent a total of four hours exploring the basin.

DeFazio, an Oregon Democrat, said he was disappointed that a single sensor's failure had led to the crashes. "We've got to get to the bottom of this".

Boeing Co. has failed to turn over any records to House investigators about the flawed safety feature on the 737 Max implicated in two fatal crashes.

The airline's pilots union urged Boeing officials to make a fix to the planes during a November 27 meeting at the union's headquarters, less than a month after a 737 Max 8 crashed off the coast of Indonesia, according to recordings obtained by the Dallas Morning News, the New York Times and CBS News.

CNN reported that Elwell pledged to reap lessons from ongoing investigations and reviews by spectators who want to ensure that the Boeing 737 Max models are safe to fly.

"These guys didn't even know the damn system was on the airplane, nor did anybody else", said Mike Michaelis, head of safety for the pilot's union.

But in a letter obtained by AFP, Michaelis said the instructions weren't sufficient for pilots to know how to handle malfunctions with the anti-stall system.

Acting FAA chief Daniel Elwell replied, "I as a pilot when I first heard about this, I thought that there should have been more text in the manual about MCAS, I agree".

He said he expects more explanation to accompany Boeing's fix for the plane, "to make pilots more aware and respond better to an anomaly".

While the FAA itself signed off on at least the preliminary design of the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System or MCAS, which was driving down the noses of the two planes that crashed, some of the approvals were granted by Boeing employees designated to act as representatives of the FAA.
