Now EASA is finalizing documents reviews and will issue next month, said Patrick Ky, executive director of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency. “That will be followed by four weeks of public comment, while the development of a so-called synthetic sensor to add redundancy will take 20 to 24 months”, he said.

Now the plan for Boeing is to return its beleaguered workhorse to service by year-end. The FAA did not also finalize its comments and tests on the 737 Max but the impressions of the FAA chief Steve Dickson was positive as he flew the Max last month and said the plane’s controls felt “very comfortable,” but the review process wasn’t complete.
