Boeing Seeks Return to Skies After Software Fix
The Chicago-based planemaker says it’s fixed the software glitch implicated in two recent deadly crashes of its embattled 737 MAX jet — and tested it on more than 200 flights. But the plane will face further scrutiny from the Federal Aviation Administration before it’s deemed airworthy: Regulators are requesting more information about the update, and once they’re happy, the next step is a certification test flight.
How long will that process take? While an FAA spokesman says the agency’s not rushing, Boeing believes any requests for details won’t take much more work.
