Flight testing for Boeing's 737 Max could begin Monday

Published Mon Jun 29 2020 00:00:54 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
Flight-certification testing for Boeing’s 737 Max, which has been grounded since March 2019 because of two deadly crashes, could begin as early as Monday. The company needs clearance from the FAA before the planes can fly again, and the test flights, with FAA test pilots, are a key step. Even if no new problems are discovered during the test flights, it’s likely to take at least a month to get pilots trained and get mothballed planes upgraded, inspected and serviced. The Max's flight control system, triggered by faulty readings from sensors, had pushed the planes into nosedives that led to crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, killing 346 people.
