Boeing To Update 737 MAX Software As Grounding Of Jets Drags On

Flight Simulator Shows What It's Like Inside Plane Just Before Crash

The United States and many other countries have grounded the Max 8s as the USA -based company faces the challenge of proving the jets are safe to fly amid suspicions that faulty sensors and software contributed to the two crashes that killed 346 people in less than six months.

In the simulator, Aimer took off from the same airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, bound for Nairobi, Kenya, "flying" something like the Boeing 737 Max 8, a model that has since been grounded in the USA after the crash in Ethiopia earlier this month and another like it months before.

The civil aviation safety agency noted that the work on the flight data recorder would resume the following day. Acting Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) administrator Daniel Elwell has said he does not know how long the United States grounding will last.

Air Canada and United Airlines on Friday became the first major carriers in North America to warn of negative financial implications to business as a outcome of the grounding of the Boeing planes.

Boeing Co. suspended deliveries of the 737 Max planes and has not said when it will be able to address regulators' concerns with the planes.

"Overall, we view the interruptions from the 737 MAX grounding as a temporary, one-off issue", Spracklin wrote.

"It has been obvious since the Lion Air crash that a redesign of the 737 MAX 8 has been urgently needed. and the announced proposed fixes do not go far enough". Calgary-based WestJet Airlines Ltd.'s fleet includes 13 737 Max planes. Ethiopian Airlines says its pilots received special training on the software.

The 737 MAX series is Boeing's fastest-selling model and it is still relatively new with fewer than 500 in service.

However, there have been reports from pilots that the system tip the aircraft's nose downwards within minutes of take-off, forcing them to step in to stop the plane from dropping.

The Ethiopian Airlines pilots reported similar difficulties before their aircraft plunged to the ground.

According to The New York Times, air traffic controllers observed the Ethiopian Airlines plane "oscillating up and down by hundreds of feet" prior to the crash. Shortly after their takeoffs, both crews tried to return to the airports but crashed. "Request vector (direction) for landing".

"He said he had a flight control problem".
