Will we see the Boeing 737 MAX in the air again this year? The American manufacturer hopes in any case a return of the 737 MAX in mid-2020. This is what he announced on Thursday. “The 737 MAX will return to service in mid-2020. This updated estimate is based on experience to date from the certification process,” said Boeing.
“This estimate also takes into account, on the one hand, the thorough and rigorous examination which the regulatory authorities carry out […], and on the other hand, the decisions taken by the Joint JOEB Operations Evaluation Committee (Joint Operations Evaluation Board) to determine the training needs of pilots,” said the American manufacturer. Note that to get back in the air, the aircraft will also need the backing of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other regulatory authorities around the world.
