The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FIA) has announced that it will conduct a joint technical assessment of Boeing's modifications to its Max 737 aircraft from April 29, with the participation of representatives of nine foreign aviation authorities.
The United States Air Traffic Regulatory Authority said the technical assessment would lead to a comprehensive review on which a flight control system would be issued.
The system, equipped with Boeing 737 Max aircraft carried by experts responsible for two air disasters that left within 34 months dead and prevented the flight of these aircraft for more than a month.
According to the Federal Aviation Administration, its experts will meet with their counterparts in the nine foreign aviation authorities from April 29 for this 90-day review.
The Administration explained that during this period the experts would assess the various aspects of the aircraft's aeronautical control system, including the design of the system and the interaction of the pilots, to determine whether it was in compliance with the applicable regulations and to make improvements if necessary.
The nine representatives to be represented in this assessment process are civil aviation authorities in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union (ESA), Japan, Indonesia, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.
The group responsible for the review is led by the former head of the US Agency for Transport Safety and includes experts from the Federal Aviation Administration and NASA, not to mention those representing international aviation authorities.
Boeing said at the end of March that it would provide better training to the pilots on the system to enhance the maneuverability characteristics of the aircraft "737 Max", pointing out that the changes introduced to the system significantly changed the way it works.
Last week Boeing Group chief executive Denise Mullenberg confirmed that he had recently conducted 96 pilot flights on the modified version of the 737Max, and that the pilots had participated in more than 159 hours of tests. Ending / 25
