Boeing must address the issue before grounded jets fly again.
Not so fast, Boeing.
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said today it has identified a possible new risk that Boeing will have to deal with on the 737 MAX jet series, before the grounded jet gets FAA permission to fly again.
FAA told Reuters about the newly discovered vulnerability on Wednesday.
David Shepardson writing for Reuters:
The risk was discovered during a simulator test last week, sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters. As a result, Boeing is not expected to run a certification test flight until at least July 8, they said.
“On the most recent issue, the FAA’s process is designed to discover and highlight potential risks. The FAA recently found a potential risk that Boeing must mitigate,” the FAA said in the statement emailed to Reuters.
Asked about the new potential risk, Boeing said it is “working closely with the FAA to safely return the MAX to service.”

If your office works at all, it uses Microsoft Office. Those icons for Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook are as familiar around some workplaces as the coffee machine. So familiar, in fact, that they get taken for granted – and rarely used to their full potential. Whether you need a crash course in the essential tools […]
