THE union representing American Airlines pilots is demanding time in a Boeing 737 Max simulator, saying its members should be given access before the grounded plane returns to service, reports Bloomberg.

Dan Carey, head of the Allied Pilots Association (APA), appealed to Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg after testifying before a Congressional subcommittee looking into two deadly 737 crashes.



The APA has said that an earlier request for simulator time, which union officials made to Boeing through American, was rejected.



'Our participation in every aspect of returning the 737 Max to service and restoring public trust in the airplane is absolutely critical,' Mr Carey said as he asked for access to a full-motion Max simulator as soon as possible.



American is one of three US carriers operating the Max, with 24 in its fleet; some 4,200 company pilots will eventually operate the plane.
