BREAKING FAA to give 45 days to comment on proposed software and procedures changes before the Boeing 737 MAX to resume operations


The FAA said the public will have 45 days to comment on “proposed design changes and crew procedures to mitigate the safety issues.

The FAA said on Tuesday it plans to issue a proposed airworthiness directive for the Boeing 737 MAX in the “near future” to address changes made since the plane was grounded in March 2019 after two fatal crashes killed 346 people.

An official briefed on the matter told Reuters that the FAA is unlikely to unground the 737 MAX before sometime in October.

Boeing has said it expects to resume deliveries before Sept. 30 following regulatory approval.
