Boeing will roll out a software upgrade for its grounded 737 Max plane within the coming weeks, following the Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 individuals.
The US planemaker expects the US Federal Aviation Administration to approve design modifications to the software “no later than April 2019”.
Boeing started work on the upgrade after one other 737 Max jet crashed in October.
Countries internationally have grounded Boeing 737 Max eight and 9 jets.
An Ethiopian delegation has joined investigators in Paris tasked with uncovering the reason for the Boeing 737 Max crash on Sunday.
France’s Bureau of Inquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA) obtained the flight information and cockpit voice recorders on Thursday.
The software Boeing plans to implement consists of updates to the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System.
This is the 737 Max’s automated anti-stalling system which is designed to maintain the aircraft from stalling.
It stops the plane from pointing upwards at too excessive an angle, the place it might lose its elevate.
However, there have been incidents of pilots reporting that the system tipped the plane’s nostril downwards inside minutes of take-off, forcing them to step in to cease the aircraft from dropping.
The FAA has stated that the Boeing 737 is not going to fly till a software replace could be examined and put in.
The BEA has taken cost of the Ethiopian Airlines plane’s black packing containers, however a spokesman stated the primary analyses might take between half a day and several other days, relying on the packing containers’ situation.
