Boeing to Submit Final 737 Max Software Fix Soon to the FAA

12:20 04/05/2019

The FAA announced this week that Boeing's BA  737 Max software fix is expected to be under FAA review over the coming weeks.

Wall Street has been paying a lot of attention to Boeing over the past month since another of its planes had a deadly crash in just months. The company has had two fatal airplane crashes since October.

Boeing's 737 Max Jets have now been grounded since mid-March.

'Safety is our first priority, and we will take a thorough and methodical approach to the development and testing of the update to ensure we take the time to get it right,' Boeing said in a statement.

“Time is needed for additional work by Boeing as the result of an ongoing review of the 737 MAX Flight Control System to ensure that Boeing has identified and appropriately addressed all pertinent issues,” the FAA said.

The FAA will be conducting a 'rigorous safety review.'

According to a Wall Street Journal report, officials investigating the crash of the Ethiopian airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 believe that a flight control feature designed to prevent a stall had been activated before the plane crashed.

The article cited sources that had been brief on investigators' preliminary conclusion from data captured by the plane's black boxes.

A wrongful death lawsuit was also filed this week on Thursday in Chicago against Boeing on behalf of Samya Stumo, a 24-year-old woman who died in the Ethiopia Airlines crash.

She was a niece of Ralph Nader, who ran for president in the past.

'As somebody who has lost the dearest person in my life, I want her death not to be in vain. I don't want anybody else to die,' said Nadia Milleron, Stumo's mother.
