EASA, European Aviation Safety Agency, is expecting to lift the Boeing 737 MAX ban. The whole Boeing 737 MAX family has been grounded for many months after two extreme accidents. The two incidents had the same reasons for the crash.
The Boeing 737 Max has been grounded for nearly a year and half. It was expected to fly during 2019, but some shifting happened, at the moment it seems that Boeing is doing a great job toward the recertification of the 737 MAX family.
It seems that the Boeing 737 MAX recertification is now onto its final examinations and test flights from the FAA, EASA, and Transport Canada.
Patrick Ky, executive director of EASA said:
Patrick Ky announced that his organization wanted to lift the MAX’s ban so it’s ready as soon as November 2020. This would likely be after the FAA release its ban. However, it could take longer for the 737 MAX to get flying in Europe.
“For the first time in a year and a half I can say there’s an end in sight to work on the MAX”
The Boeing 737 MAX has been the most examined and inspected aircraft through aviation history. That means issues were found rectified on the way.
Some countries have different rules on the 737 MAX. EASA will allow flights with specific restrictions and Germany banned the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to fly in their airspace until it’s 100% safe and certified.
