EASA authorizes the operation of Boeing 737 MAX in the European Union
Modified Boeing 737 MAX will be allowed to fly again in Europe. This was reported by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
“EASA has completed an independent study of the Boeing 737 MAX and declares that the modified aircraft is ready to return to service,” – stated agency
As a reminder, earlier Boeing 737 MAX flights resumed flights in Brazil and the USA. The first commercial flight in 20 months was made on December 10 from Sao Paulo to Porto Alegre, Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul.
Following this, resumed American Airlines. On December 29, the airliner made a flight from Miami, Florida to New York. The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) granted permission to resume flights at the end of November.
However, China, one of the world's main consumers of the Boeing 737 MAX, said in this regard that it was not yet ready to allow flights of this aircraft. “We have not drawn up a reactivation schedule for this aircraft type because we cannot change three fundamental principles,” a statement issued by the PRC Civil Aviation Authority said.
“Airworthiness approval required due to aircraft design changes … Pilots are required to undergo a thorough retraining for this. We need to get clear results of the investigation into the causes of the two disasters that occurred with the Boeing 737 MAX. ”
As the document clarifies, China will not start using these airliners until it is confirmed that recent changes in the design of this model ensure its absolute safe and really effective.
How did the Boeing 737 MAX's troubles begin
Recall that the flights of these airliners were suspended after two accidents. On March 10, 2019, Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed in Ethiopia, killing 157 people. On October 29, 2018, 189 people were killed in the crash of an aircraft of a similar model to Lion Air in Indonesia.
Boeing officials admitted that in both cases the aircraft crashed due to a malfunction of the Maneuverability Improvement System (MCAS). After that, many countries, including Russia, the United States and the European Union, suspended the operation of the Boeing 737 MAX for security reasons. The corporation was forced to stop production of new liners until the MCAS system was finalized. As a result, Boeing suffered colossal losses. : ///
