Boeing plans to release software update, pilot training for 737 MAX soon

Separately, the US Department of Transportation's inspector general was also scrutinizing the FAA's oversight of Boeing and the development of the 737 MAX, according to a person with knowledge of the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity.

"If that's the case, that does raise the possibility that there is a similar occurrence between the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines accidents", said Clint Balog, a Montana-based professor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

The BEA will release a preliminary report within 30 days, French investigators said.

"We've been working in full cooperation with the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Department of Transportation and the National Transportation Safety Board on all issues relating to both the Lion Air and the Ethiopian Airlines accidents since the Lion Air accident occurred in October a year ago", Dennis Muilenburg, chair, president and CEO of Boeing, said in a statement.

Approached for comment, SACAA spokesperson Kabelo Ledwaba said in the authority's view it was not necessary to issue one in SA, as only Comair had a MAX 8 that was flying in and out of SA in service, and this aircraft had been voluntarily grounded.

A flight deck computer's response to an apparently faulty angle-of-attack sensor is at the heart of the ongoing probe into the Lion Air crash.

Boeing announced on Tuesday that it would soon release a software update and related pilot training for the 737 MAX that will address concerns discovered in the aftermath of the Lion Air Flight 610 accident in October a year ago.

He added: "We know lives depend on the work we do".

"This includes updates to the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) flight control law, pilot displays, operation manuals and crew training", Boeing said.

But because of budget constraints, the FAA delegated aspects of the approval process to Boeing itself, according to sources. This basically was a fatal accident that involved a number of 737 Max 8 Model to be there in even less than 5 months.

The "Seattle Times" quoted unnamed engineers who said the plane maker had understated the power of the flight-control software in a system safety analysis.

Norwegian Airlines has already said it will seek compensation after grounding its MAX aircraft, and various companies are reconsidering orders. Competitor Airbus has respectfully remained quiet while the world was waiting for Boeing to speak out.

Air Canada says it has taken several steps to adjust for grounded Max 8s, which represent about six per cent of its total fleet capacity.
