Boeing's 737 Max inches closer to EU regulatory clearance
THE European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) published a proposed airworthiness directive for Boeing's 737 Max to return to service, reports Bloomberg
THE European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) published a proposed airworthiness directive for Boeing's 737 Max to return to service, reports Bloomberg.
The Max is on track for final clearance by early 2021 and would be the final part of Boeing's effort in returning the plane to service outside the US.
'I am confident that we have left no stone unturned in our assessment of the aircraft with its changed design approach,' said EASA's executive director Patrick Ky.
'The result was a thorough and comprehensive review of how this plane flies and what it is like for a pilot to fly the Max, giving us the assurance that it is now safe to fly,' said Mr Ky.
In October, Mr Ky said he was satisfied with Boeing's changes after two crashes within five months killed 346 people, causing the global grounding of the 737 Max fleet in March 2019.
