NEW YORK: Boeing on Thursday mentioned it had acquired approval from US regulators for a fix to an electrical downside that has grounded over 100 737 Max planes globally since April.
“After gaining final approvals from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), we have issued service bulletins for the affected fleet,” a Boeing spokesman mentioned. Boeing introduced on April 9 that it had notified 16 airways of the issue, resulting in grounding of the planes.
FAA described the issue as “an electrical bonding and grounding issue”. It was a brand new setback after Max was cleared for service in November 2020 following a 20-month grounding attributable to two crashes
