Aircraft manufacturer Boeing completed the internal trial of the updated anti-stall software of the 737 MAX jets. “We’re making steady progress toward certification,” the Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg said in a video released by the company.
The previous version of the software controlling this system was most likely the cause of two tragic crashes of 737 MAX aircraft in Indonesia and Ethiopia. The upgrade is designed to make the anti-stall system less aggressive and prevent the repeated nose-down commands that overwhelmed flight crews for Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines.
All 737 MAX aircraft owned by airlines around the world have been halted until a new certificate allowing them to fly with passengers is obtained.
