Boeing provides updates on 737 Max recertification progress

Boeing hopeful for 737 MAX return to service in January 2020 Read Next Aviation industry sceptical about Boeing 737 Max return

Boeing's 737 MAX aircraft have been grounded in some forty countries since March this year, . following two deadly crashes that killed 346 people. Southwest Airlines is waiting out a global grounding of MAX 8 and MAX 9 aircraft at the airport. The longer the 737 MAX grounding lasts, the longer it will take Boeing to work through deliveries and the higher the risk it will have to halt production of the money-spinning MAX. Those crashes have been tied to an automatic safety system on the plane.

One benefit is that aircraft do not depreciate until they start flying, so while an aircraft may be sitting, it still retains the same value until it begins to fly, one person said.

Boeing's stock rose 4.5% on the news, on track for its best day since June. Patrick Ky, executive director of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), told trade magazine Aviation Week last month that his agency is likely to clear the Max as safe to fly in January, a month after the FAA.

"We expect the Max to be certified, airworthiness directive issued, ungrounded in mid-December".

Chicago-based Boeing said it took 10 new orders in October, down from 24 in the same month past year, which included 14 Max jets.

The FAA has repeatedly said that it has set no time frame for the process.

In a statement, the company said that it hopes that the FAA would approve certification of the plane's flight control software before the end of the year.

The FAA, which has come in for widespread criticism for entrusting certification of important systems of the aircraft to Boeing, has promised a thorough review before certification.

Some 737 MAX jets are in long-term storage with their engines sealed to prevent invasion from birds and wildlife, while others are receiving almost daily checks that would enable a quicker return to flight.

The company delivered 20 commercial planes last month, including 12 for the 787, which Boeing calls the Dreamliner.

"In parallel, we are working towards final validation of the updated training requirements, which must occur before the MAX returns to commercial service, and which we now expect to begin in January", it added.

Boeing is working towards Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification flights of its trouble-torn 737 Max aircraft where pilots of the USA aviation regulator will conduct flight (s) of the final updated software on board the aircraft.
