EASA start test flights on 737 MAX
Written by Karlo Mudri.
Just over 540 days after EASA banned commercial flights with the 737 MAX aircraft, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in collaboration with the US Aviation Safety Agency (FAA) and Boeing has begun recertification of the 737 MAX aircraft.
Although the recertification process was due to begin in the spring, the Corona virus pandemic postponed the entire process to September due to travel restrictions between Europe and the United States. The test flights in the simulator took place in Gatwick, London from September 1, while the test flights took place from September 7 in Vancouver, Canada.
The Boeing 737 MAX aircraft were grounded after two serious accidents of Lion Air aircraft and Ethiopian Airlines aircraft that occurred due to the MCAS system.
