AUSTRALIA has accepted a request to store Singapore Airlines' six Silkair Boeing 737 Maxes in its Northern Territory near Alice Springs as worldwide Max groundings continue after two crashes killed 346 people, reports Bloomberg.

Peter Gibson, a spokesman at the Australian government's Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), said experienced Boeing pilots will fly the planes, without use of MCAS [manoeuvring characteristics augmentation system], suspected of causing the accidents.



The pilots have also received training in recovery actions in case an MCAS-related event occurs, Mr Gibson said. CASA has worked closely with aviation regulators in Singapore and Indonesia to review and coordinate the ferry flights, he said.



It is still unclear when the Max 737 will resume scheduled flights as investigations by various authorities around the world continue. CASA said it is following flight profiles for ferrying the aircraft in the US, Canada and Europe. In one California facility, the cost of storage runs to about $2,000 a month for a plane, according to an industry veteran.
