Boeing Conducts Final Test Flight Of 737 MAX With Software Fix

In that crash as well as the Ethiopian Airlines disaster, pilots lost control of the planes soon after taking off. Investigators are focused in part on an anti-stall system called the MCAS, or maneuvering characteristics augmentation system, which can repeatedly push the plane's nose down.

Canada called on Wednesday for pilots to receive simulator training for new Boeing 737 MAX software, rather than computer courses, going a step beyond proposals by US regulators and opening the door to disagreement over measures to end a global grounding of the jets after two fatal crashes.

Dennis Muilenberg, chief executive, said a final engineering test flight before certification had been conducted.

Boeing's "technical and engineering leaders were on board" the latest flight and Mr Muillenberg had also been up in one of the jets to see the new system in action.


New training requirements for Boeing Co's grounded 737 MAX jet should include time in a flight simulator, Canada's transport minister said on Wednesday.

The 737 MAX remains grounded around the world pending regulatory approval to resume flying.

Garneau went farther than a group of experts appointed by U.S. aviation regulators, who have suggested that computer and classroom instruction are enough.

"From our point of view, it's not going to be a question of pulling out an iPad and spending an hour on it", Garneau said.
